Disney movies are known for their lovable characters, awesome animations and catchy soundtracks. Some of the most popular artists from every genre of music have been selected to record songs for Disney movies, but the most memorable tunes definitely come from our favorite pop stars. Here are a few of our favorite Disney songs by pop stars.
When she was just 17-years-old, Christina Aguilera recorded “Reflection” for the 1998 film “Mulan.” She shocked the world with her powerhouse vocals as she belted out this classic tune. The song later became her debut single, and she caught the attention of many bigwigs in the music industry. So many people were surprised that such a strong and powerful voice could come out of a tiny teenager. The song is now a Disney classic, and when people think of the movie “Mulan,” they can’t help but think of “Reflection,” too.
Miley Cyrus proved she has the talent and the vocal range to knock us off our feet when she sang "The Climb” for “Hannah Montana: The Movie’.” The country ballad showcased Miley’s beautiful, raspy voice and her ability to play the guitar. The song, which was initially rejected by numerous country artists, was presented to Miley, and she decided to give it a shot. It turned out to be the best decision of her career. “The Climb” describes the difficult yet rewarding journey of life, and it was certified triple platinum just five months after its release.
Kelly Clarkson is the voice behind the inspiring song “Breakaway” from “The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement.” The song, which was a part of the film’s soundtrack, received positive reviews from music critics and fans. The lyrics speak about being raised in a small town, breaking away from conformity, and following your dreams. The song made the top 20 charts in multiple countries, including Australia, Belgium, and the Netherlands. If you’re ever feeling down about life, listening to this song will instantly cheer you up!
It’s a pretty odd combination, but *NSYNC and Phil Collins’ song "Trashin’ The Camp” from the movie “Tarzan” turned out to be one of our favorite Disney tunes ever. The boy band and the veteran rocker mixed a bit of doo-wop along with some beatboxing and funky drums. Without any real lyrics, it’s hard to sing along, but once this song comes on, it’s impossible to stop yourself from grooving to the beat.
