ABC will be airing two Disney Parks holiday specials this year. Both feature performances by Fifth Harmony.
The girl group will be performing “Can You See” and “The Christmas Song” on the first show (“The Wonderful World Of Disney: Magical Holiday Celebration”), which airs at 9PM ET on November 30.
It will then sing “Sleigh Ride” during the Christmas morning show.
Fifth Harmony recently taped its performances at Disney World.
While present for the taping, the group met with ABC’s media team to offer discuss their song choices, as well as the magic of Disney World.
Comments from the group members follow:
On the magic of performing at Disney World:
Lauren: It’s so amazing. We’re super excited to be part of it. Disney’s such a magical place and, for a magical time of year, the combination of the two is spectacular to be a part of.
Dinah: Dreams really do come true…at Disney World.
Ally: Performing here at Disney World during the holidays is so magical and so special. This is my favorite place in the world. It’s the happiest place in the world, and I couldn’t think of a better time to do this. This is purely magical!
On the Disney World experience:
Normani: My first memory coming to Disney World was actually this year sometime. I was 21 years old, and I’m 21 now. I always wanted to come to Disney World, but I never quite made my way. Me and my mom actually got the chance to come, and it was just beautiful because we saw the castle and it’s crazy how the lights are so magical. And the fireworks show is so beautiful. They actually changed the show…they added Moana!
(Normani and Dinah embrace, as Dinah was also excited about the “Moana” addition. Normani confirms that she “thought about [Dinah]” when she saw it)
That was cute, and then Princess Tiana was in there and then Tinker Bell, you see her flying from the castle into the air, and it’s so magical and Disney is not like any other place. It’s the most magical place on earth.
On the song choices:
Normani: For the night time special, we chose to sing one of our favorites. It’s actually kind of our first original Christmas song, and it’s for the movie “Star.” It’s called “Can You See.” And then another of our favorites and top picks would definitely have to be “The Christmas Song,” which literally since I was a little girl for as long as I can remember, that was the only Christmas song that I ever wanted to hear.
Ally: Yes, me too.
Normani: Especially the rendition by Nat King Cole. So, hopefully we can also do it justice.
Dinah: It’ s a perfect song to close off the night as well, and it’s so magical and it ties into what Disney’s all about. We’re glad we’re here to do it.
