Many know Latter-day Saint musician Donny Osmond for his iconic Las Vegas show with his sister, Marie Osmond, which ran for 11 years before the dynamic duo took their final bow in November 2019. But not everyone is aware that he also sings "I'll Make a Man Out of You" as the voice for Shang in Disney's 1998 film Mulan.
On April 16, Disney hosted a family singalong on ABC with celebrities and musicians performing favorite hits from The Lion King to Pocohantas to Hercules and everything in between. But for many listeners, a favorite of the night was Donny's performance. Singing with Donny were some special young guests that also charmed audiences—his grandchildren.
See the Twitter reactions to Donny's performance below.

Funny story. I once took my mother to a Donny Osmond concert for her birthday and the only song I knew was “I’ll Make A Man Outta You.” It was also the only song the adults in the crowd didn’t know. It was my moment to shine! #DisneyFamilySingalong — annmarie 💕 (@rinistan1) April 17, 2020
