One of the most amazing things about Disney is all of the amazing music that they have created over the years. From Oscar-winning songs like “Under the Sea” from The Little Mermaid and “Colors of the Wind” from Pocahontas, to popular ones that people can’t get out of their heads like “Un Poco Loco” from Coco and “Surface Pressure” from one of Disney’s newest films, Encanto. Disney has a legacy for creating beautiful songs that become pieces of music history.
June 21 is World Music Day and Disney does not want to miss out on the celebration. Disney has shared that Frozen star Idina Menzel — who sang the Oscar-winning song Let It Go — will be hosting a special livestream event of Disney’s Harmonious at EPCOT on Disney+. Moana star Auli’i Cravalho will also be making a special appearance for the event.
Disney Parks Blog shared more information on the livestream:
