Disney+ Stars’ Pride Songs

Miley Cyrus, star of Disney+’s Hannah Montana, and Disney+ itself are separately celebrating Pride Month with free streamed concerts this weekend.

Peacock’s one-hour Miley Cyrus Presents Stand By You, from Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, premieres today, June 25. Joining Cyrus, who originally rose to fame as Montana on The Disney Channel, are Brothers Osborne, Mickey Guyton, Little Big Town, Maren Morris and Orville Peck.

Cyrus’ selections include covers of “Believe,” “True Colors,” “We Belong,” “Dancing Queen” and a Madonna medley featuring “Music,” “Express Yourself,” and “Like A Prayer.”

Disney+ hasn’t revealed what songs will be featured in Sunday’s This is Me: Pride Celebration Spectacular, except to tease that they’ll be “from the iconic movies and series available to stream on Disney+, reinterpreted through a LGBTQ+ lens.”
