The Disney Family Singalong will let viewers in on the magic with an animated character to guide the on-screen lyrics, to allow families to follow along as the featured celebrities sing songs from Disney films including Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Toy Story, Moana, Frozen and High School Musical. The special will also include PSAs with talent from across Walt Disney Television to raise awareness about Feeding America's network and resources for people struggling due to COVID-19.

"If there's something that we've all learned in the past few weeks, it's to cherish every moment and the importance of connection, whether through laughter, stories or music," Karey Burke, president, ABC Entertainment, said in a statement. "We hope that we can help create some new unforgettable moments in everyone's home in a way that only the magic of Disney can."

Several of the participating celebrities are parents of kids who love Disney, including Rhett — the country star's daughters love certain movies so much, the family even dressed as the cast of The Little Mermaid for Halloween last year. Rhett's older daughters, Willa Gray and Ada James, are also often shown on their parents' Instagram accounts wearing princess dresses as their daily attire.

"In my house, between Coco and Frozen, I am completely sick of 'Let It Go' and Frozen.," Rhett joked to KIX 92.1 in August. "And then this song called 'Remember Me' that's in Coco that we literally watch every single day, and now has drifted to The Little Mermaid, so I would say that those three songs, if I never heard them again, I would not be upset."
