It's been a long time since we've seen the cast of High school musical Overall – even though they are still exciting fans with their virtual antics – and that will change on April 16. Meanwhile, the East High Wildcats meet for a special performance The Disney family Singalong, a nationwide event where artists such as Christina Aguilera, Michael Bublé, Kristin Chenoweth, Auli & # 39; i Cravalho, Amber Riley, John Stamos, Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato and Alan Menken share their favorite Disney classics from their own homes pick up. The special aims to raise awareness of Feeding America's large network and resources for people in the country who are in unfamiliar circumstances and who are experiencing hunger for the first time due to COVID-19.
HSM The director Kenny Ortega has brought together actors and artists from his various films and television series to sing together a special interpretation of the hymn of the music film from 2006: "We are all in this together." Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Corbin Bleu, Monique Coleman and Lucas Grabeel will participate in one way or another, with Zac Efron joining the broadcast to send a message during the special. (So they won't be together, but it's the thought that counts!) In an interview with DeadlineOrtega explained that the performance was a new addition to the sing-along program, but a fitting one.
"I've received videos of doctors, nurses, nurses, and doctors in masks and hospital gowns singing" We're all together "in the hallways of hospitals," he said. The director also mentioned that he had seen countless videos of people around the world singing the popular song. "I think Ashley (Tisdale) started this whole movement with their home video. I can't imagine Matthew Gerrard and Robbie Nevil who wrote this song had an idea that it had legs and might mean more now would have done it first than in our time. "
Taking part in the one-hour event special made sense for him, Ortega said, and he sees the production as "good medicine" for fans during the coronavirus pandemic. "There are young people out there who look up to these people and have had that for a long time," he said. "When you see them in their own living rooms and in their jogging pants hanging out with their families, everyone realizes that there is truth behind these words – we are all together in different circumstances. We have to feel this company."
The Disney family Singalong will air on April 16!
