“Puppy for Hanukkah”

  • Singer, actor, and Hamilton star Daveed Diggs has a brand new song for Hanukkah, and the internet is loving it!
  • The video features three kids lip syncing the lyrics and acting out the story of the song while Diggs sings/raps about hoping to receive a puppy during one of the eight nights of Hanukkah.
  • Diggs and the excited youngsters take the audience through their week-plus celebration of the holiday complete with disappointment at receiving socks on the first night.
  • And at one point in the song Diggs even recites an entire traditional prayer/blessing before admitting, “don’t know what it means but I learned it phonetic.” Check it out:

“Joy to the World”

  • Meg Donnelly and Kialani Mills have put their own updated and harmonious twist on the classic Christmas carol.
  • While not nearly as exciting and dramatic as “Puppy for Hanukkah” the duo brings their own magic to the simple setting that changes color a few times for a truly festive look.
  • Raven’s Home star, Isaac Ryan Brown makes a special guest appearance and adds an all-original verse to the song.
  • “Joy to the World” will be featured in Disney Channel Epic Holiday Showdown! airing on Sunday, December 6th at 7pm ET/PT.
