- Beyoncé (opens in new tab) made a surprise appearance during ABC's Disney Family Singalong Thursday night, performing an unsurprisingly gorgeous rendition of "When You Wish Upon a Star" from Pinocchio.
- She dedicated the performance to "all of the health care workers who have been working tirelessly to keep us healthy and safe."
- "Please hold on to your families tight. Please be safe. Don't give up hope. We're going to get through this," Beyoncé (opens in new tab) said.
Beyoncé's been absent from the internet of late, last posting on Instagram on February 3—which, naturally, caused the Beyhive to panic just a little. But our long and tortured wait for new Bey content could not have been more worth it—she made a surprise appearance during Thursday's Disney Family Singalong, performing "When You Wish Upon a Star." It was, as you probably anticipated, completely perfect:

Beyoncé dedicated her performance to "all of the health care workers who have been working tirelessly to keep us healthy and safe," adding, "We greatly appreciate you. And she sent a reassuring message to viewers when she finished singing, too. "Please hold on to your families tight. Please be safe," she said. "Don't give up hope. We're going to get through this, I promise. God bless you."
Another standout contributor to the event? Ariana Grande, who not only performed the Hercules number "I Won't Say I'm In Love," but also sang all the harmonies, shot the video, and put together the final product herself. "Wow wow wow," manager Scooter Braun tweeted. "She sang all the parts and melodies on her iPhone and mixed it and shot all the part on her iPhone in a day."
The performance reignited the internet's desire to see Grande cast as Megara in a live action remake of Hercules—and she's got a pretty impressive advocate on her side. Susan Egan, who voiced Meg in the Disney movie, tweeted (opens in new tab), "Couldn’t be more perfect! @ArianaGrande is the greatest thing since the pocket in pita!" Which delighted Grande:
Couldn’t be more perfect! @ArianaGrande is the greatest thing since the pocket in pita!@FrankieJGrande ain’t bad either!! 💕 🌸 https://t.co/9NsAD4dNYTApril 15, 2020
