DCAPPELLA’S debut album will include an eclectic mix of tracks, breathing new life into timeless songs such as “You’ll Be in My Heart” and “A Whole New World” to modern day classics “Let It Go/Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” and “Remember Me.”  Several album tracks have been previously released to wide fan praise; “Immortals,” “How Far I’ll Go,”Disney Medley”  and “Glory Days,” with a combined 5.4 million views to date and over 3.4 million global streams.

Known for their reimagined classics from the Disney songbook and beyond, the seven dynamic voices that make up DCAPPELLA, Sojourner Brown (alto), Orlando Dixon (baritone/“The Voice”), Antonio Fernandez (vocal percussion), Morgan Keene (soprano/“Newsies”), Shelley Regner (mezzo/“Pitch Perfect” films), Joe Santoni (bass), and RJ Woessner (tenor), represent a first for Disney, who launched the brand’s flagship a cappella experience last spring with a TV debut on American Idol during “Disney Night,” where the group performed classics from The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, and Aladdin. That same week, they graced one of Hollywood’s most hallowed stages to open Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Live in Concert at the Hollywood Bowl. Most recently, they recorded four songs on the digital version of the Incredibles 2 original motion picture soundtrack.
