ABC went all out over the weekend with their second round of “The Disney Family Singalong” and man will it ease your worries.
If you didn’t already tune into the television special when it aired the first time around on April 16, the latest episode is definitely one to join in on. ABC started the new program in response to the current COVID-19 pandemic and is meant to rally families, friends, and celebrities together for a night of entertainment, laughs and songs. The new series has already featured some of Disney’s most beloved musical numbers from its classic films which are sung by the top musicians currently in the game.
Last month, in April, stars like Christina Aguilera, Demi Lovato, Beyoncé, and others gathered around their cameras to sing to families across the country for “The Disney Family Singalong.” The event, which was hosted by Ryan Seacrest, saw performers in their home environments using minimal equipment and “a whole lot of harmony” to get fans watching to join in on the fun. To make things seamless, the lyrics which featured Disney’s most popular songs were displayed at the bottom of the screen.
Anyway, for Mother’s Day, ABC kicked off a second episode of the special and it was pretty dang magical.
For “The Disney Family Singalong: Volume II,” ABC really reached for the stars, wrangling in the likes of Katy Perry, Idina Menzel, and John Legend.
But the best part of the night came when Miguel and Christina Aguilera joined forces to sing a bilingual rendition of “Remember Me” from Coco.
During their portion of the singalong special, Miguel and Aguilera belted out the lyrics to the Disney-Pixar classic singing both in English and Spanish. Making the performance even more special, an all-female Mariachi band joined in to bring life to the song’s melody.
