Do you love Disney Broadway shows? If you do, you have to see this incredible virtual performance.
Day of Hope
On April 9, 2020, nine Disney Broadway performers collaborated to spread a message of hope as the world battles COVID-19. The performers came together on Good Morning America to perform “Go the Distance” from a distance.
That’s right, the ensemble worked remotely to create a musical moment. Any artist who performs live musical numbers can tell you that this is no easy feat.
Yet, the team came together beautifully. Additionally, they had a beautiful message to share.
According to Good Morning America’s website, the performance was a part of ABC’s Day of Hope. It was meant to honor food bank workers, volunteers, and struggling families.
“Go the Distance” is from Disney’s Hercules. It is a song that is meant to inspire hope, and it fits the occasion beautifully.
A Performance to Remember
Truly, my favorite part of social distancing has been performances like these. I can’t get enough of artists coming together to make magic to share with the rest of the world.
If hope was the goal with this performance, it surely worked on me. I imagine other Broadway fans out there night agree.
The performers included past and current Broadway stars. Fans might recognize some of their favorite voices:
- Heather Headley: The Lion King and Aida
- Ciara Renee: Frozen and The Hunchback of Notre Dame
- Jelani Alladin: Frozen
- L. Steven Taylor: The Lion King
- Adrienne Walker: The Lion King
- McKenzie Kurtz: Frozen
- Ryan McCartan: Frozen
- Michael James Scott: Aladdin
Check out the video that aired on Good Morning America! I hope it brings you some measure of joy.
What a treat it is to hear such a talented group of people. It is beautiful to see musical artists finding a creative way to share their craft.
