“The Disney Holiday Singalong” to Air November 30

 by Beth Keating



November 29, 2020


Back in the spring, when the pandemic first hit and families across the country went into lockdown in their homes, Disney brought their first “Singalong” to the TV screen. It was a monster success, and Disney quickly rushed a second edition into production, with more than 22.3 million viewers catching the two specials. If you have Disney+, you can still go back and watch them.

Now, with Christmas approaching, Ryan Seacrest is back, hosting a holiday edition of the fan-favorite singalong. The Disney Holiday Singalong will air Monday, November 30 from 8:00-9:00 p.m. EST on ABC.  Animated on-screen lyrics will help you sing along to the songs with the performers (as if you didn’t already know all the words!)


Among the celebrities belting out your holiday favorites this time are:


  • 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”
  • P!NK — “The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)”
  • Kerry Washington — “Joy to the World”
  • DCappella — carols throughout the evening


And while the lights on Broadway have been dark since March, and aren’t expected to come back on until sometime this spring, you’ll be able to catch the casts of The Lion King, Aladdin and the touring company of Frozen as Disney on Broadway brings you a performance of “Let It Go” from the New Amsterdam Theatre. (You can get a peek at the performers rehearsing their number at Good Morning America’s website here.)


As they did during their spring Singalongs, Disney will also use the opportunity to feature community-based organizations that can use your help during the holidays. In Singalongs Vol. I and II, Disney highlighted Feeding America. This time, they are raising awareness for Disney’s Feed the Love campaign, driving to Feeding America, Toys for Tots, and One Simple Wish. Disney’s association with Toys for Tots goes back to Walt himself, and you can even drop off toy donations through December 13 at your local Disney Store, or through shopdisney.com.
