Disney has been going all in on their Singalong specials and the upcoming holiday one is no different. Disney is going to use their latest singalong show “The Disney Holiday Singalong”, hosted by Ryan Seacrest, to focus on three charities with Disney’s Feed the Love campaign that will feature: Feeding America, Toys for Tots, and One Simple Wish.
Several performers and groups have already signed on for the November 30th show including Katy Perry and BTS.
Here’s a list of who is currently scheduled to appear:
Andrea Bocelli – “Silent Night”
BTS – “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town”
Michael Bublé – “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas”
Ciara – “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree”
Chloe x Halle – “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?”
Derek Hough and Hayley Erbert – “Hey Santa” and “Jingle Bells”
Julianne Hough – “Whistle While You Work” and “Let It Snow”
Adam Lambert – “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”
Leslie Odom Jr. – “What’s This?”
Katy Perry – “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” and “Cozy Little Christmas”
Pink – “The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)”
Kerry Washington – “Joy to the World”
Personally I’m looking forward to BTS and Pink, but they have quite the range of guests in both style and demographic appeal. It will air on November 30th at 8PM ET/PT on ABC.
Charities being supported with the Disney Feed the Love Campaign
This year Disney is partnering up with three charities for their campaign:
“In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, unemployment has soared and food insecurity is on the rise. In 2020 more than 50 million people, including 17 million children, may face hunger because of coronavirus.
In the spirit of service to our communities, Disney partners with Feeding America every holiday season to support food banks’ abilities to deliver nutritious foods to kids after school, create access points within communities throughout the country and provide food-insecure children with nutritious meals that will fuel creativity in their school and play.
Increasing the access kids have to nutritious foods and engaging audiences to take action is a part of Disney’s long-standing commitment to making healthy lifestyles accessible, simple, and fun. As such, Disney continues to provide a helping hand and much-needed food to families facing hunger.”
Toys For Tots
“Disney has proudly supported the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve’s Toys for Tots Foundation for over 70 years, dating back to 1947 when Walt Disney and his animators designed the original Toys for Tots train logo that is still used today. Disney is pleased to continue this tradition and Feed the Love with Marine Toys for Tots.
Make your holiday donation go further. Disney will donate $1 to Marine Toys for Tots for every new, unwrapped toy donated at a Disney store or a World of Disney store in the U.S. or online through shopDisney.com from Nov. 1 – Dec. 13, 2020.”
One Simple Wish
“Help spread joy to foster youth this holiday season. Without stepping foot into a mall or toy store, you can grant a foster child’s holiday wish through One Simple Wish. One Simple Wish brings national attention to the foster care system, brightening the lives of thousands of children by making their voices heard and connecting them with people who care. Since 2008 they’ve brought love, hope and joy to over 35,000 children all over the United States through their innovative programs; giving these children the support they need to thrive and succeed.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, One Simple Wish has been providing critical support to those in need, including thousands of laptops and tablets to assist with remote learning and immediate access to essentials like groceries, transportation and personal care products.”
Please give if you can and not just during the holiday season. 2020 has been especially hard on so many and we shouldn’t only wait for the holidays to help others.
Again, you can catch the The Disney Holiday Singalong on Nov. 30 at 8 PM ET/PT on ABC.
