Watch: Beyonce Joins ‘Disney Family Singalong’ To Pay Tribute To Coronavirus Healthcare Workers
The singer performed “When You Wish Upon A Star” from Pinocchio, but before launching into the song she said, “To all the families across the world, I’m very proud and honored to be a part of the Disney family and to help present the Disney Songbook Singalong in partnership with Feeding America.”
She continued on to say: “I’d like to dedicate this song to all of the healthcare workers who’ve been working tirelessly to keep us healthy and safe. We greatly appreciate you.”
Other performers featured in the singalong were Ariana Grande, who sang “I Won’t Say I’m In Love” from Hercules; Christina Aguilera, who sang “Can You Feel The Love Tonight” from The Lion King; and Tori Kelly who sang “Colors of the Wind” from Pocahontas. Plus, members of the original High School Musical cast, including Corbin Bleu, Vanessa Hudgens and Ashely Tisdale performed “We’re All In This Together.”
But Beyoncé, who recently starred in Disney’s The Lion King remake, made a surprise performance, as her appearance was not announced ahead of time. Her appearance definitely excited fans, to say the least.

Beyoncè invented hope and ended a pandemic underneath the most luscious hair I’ve witnessed in weeks now while singing a wholesome Disney lullaby. 2020 is full of tricks.
