Made by Oh My Disney, the sessions feature video performances of Disney’s brightest voices from, ranging from Broadway, Hollywood Records, Walt Disney Records, Maker Studios, Disney Channel, and more. Past series have featured performances from artists such as Sabrina Carpenter, Lucy Hale, Laura Marano, as well as the Broadway casts of Newsies, The Lion King and Aladdin.
