Disney Channel is giving audiences even more seasonal music offerings this year through the Disney Music Vevo channel on YouTube. Today, they released two new songs, “Puppy for Hanukkah” and a “Joy to the World” remix.
- Seasons Greetings! This year more than ever we need some happy music to celebrate the holidays, and Disney musicians are delivering!
- Disney Channel has shared two songs and music videos themed to Hanukkah and Christmas. The new music is part of Disney Channel’s Holidays Unwrapped content that includes:
- Music Videos
- Show Clips
- Cast Chats
- And More!
“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.
