Your favorite Disney movies are full of familiar faces and voices, but it's incredible just how many famous musicians have also contributed to Disney soundtracks. Whether it's a show-stopping solo performance or a wonderfully unexpected collaboration, chances are that many of your favorite musicians also sang in your most cherished childhood movies! Check out these 15 examples of noteworthy Disney songs!
Back when Selena Gomez was a Disney queen, she made a colorful music video for "Fly to Your Heart" from the little-seen “Peter Pan” spin-off.
Do you remember the cameo Raven-Symone made in the “Princess Diaries 2?” Well, she also sang a song with the legendary Julie Andrews for the film! Their performance of "Your Crowning Glory" was the first time Andrews had sung in public or on screen since she had throat surgery in 1997.
Back when Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus were all country (feels like forever ago, doesn't it?), Taylor was Miley’s entertainment during the barn party in the "Hannah Montana" movie! The song (which Swift herself co-wrote for the movie) is called "Crazier."
Mandy Moore not only voiced Rapunzel in the mega-hit "Tangled," but she also recorded all the songs her character sang! While the score was composed by legendary Disney composer Alan Menken, Moore is credited with vocals on six songs on the soundtrack.
Most people know Idina Menzel’s rendition of “Let It Go,” but only the truest of "Frozen" fans know that it was actually Demi Lovato who recorded the single version that was used for the film’s closing credits.
All the songs on the “Tarzan” soundtrack were composed by Phil Collins! The movie introduced Collins to a new generation of listeners and even won him the Grammy for Best Soundtrack Album.
Here's a pretty shocking one — Mel Gibson was the voice of John Smith in the beloved Disney movie, and while many of the other voice actors in "Pocahontas" chose to have different people do the singing parts, Gibson wanted to do his all of his own songs! You can hear him croon in the song "If I Never Knew You."
Disney’s “Mulan” brought together the unlikely music pairing of 90 Degrees and Stevie Wonder. The boyband and legendary singer performed the song "True to Your Heart" for the soundtrack.
Back when Christina Aguilera was only 17, she recorded the single version of “Reflection” from Disney’s “Mulan.” In the film, the song is originally recorded by Lea Salonga.
Carrie Underwood helped out with the “Enchanted” soundtrack by singing “Ever Ever After.” The music video was especially cute, as Carrie mimicked the movie by turning into a cartoon and making the same trip from Andalusia to New York.
It’s singer Ne-Yo’s voice in the song that rolls during the credits of “The Princess and the Frog.” In keeping with the movie’s location, the “Never Knew I Needed” music video was also filmed in New Orleans. Ne-Yo also wrote the song himself.
The "Cheek to Cheek" singers teamed up when The Muppets returned to the big screen with the song "We're Doing a Sequel." Comedian Bret McKenzie wrote the song, just off of his Oscar win for the song "Man or Muppet."
Fall Out Boy were reportedly such big fans of the “Big Hero 6” script that they were ecstatic to write and record "Immortals" for the soundtrack. "They explained the story to us," bassist Pete Wentz said. "It was insane how much it lined up with the way our band saw the world."
John Mayer went the cover route for his contribution to the "Cars" soundtrack, covering Bobby Troup's classic song "Route 66." In the behind the scenes video of Mayer recording the song, he even admits that his first ever car was a mini-van.
‘90s kids, did you know that your favorite band and your favorite Disney characters teamed up? Well, "Trashin' the Camp" was brought to you by the one and only *NSYNC, who collaborated with Phil Collins for the song!
