Brandy is donning her glass slippers once again for a very special performance.
The singer teamed up with Todrick Hall to create a fresh new medley of songs from Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “Cinderella”.
Members of the “Cinderella” cast including Victor Garber, Whoopi Goldberg, Bernadette Peters and Jason Alexander joined in to help the pair perform modern renditions of songs like “The Sweetest Sounds”, “In My Own Little Corner”, “10 Minutes Ago” and “Impossible.”
Ahead of its arrival on Disney+ on Friday, the cast of the 1997 film joined together for a virtual reunion.
EW gathered the stars of the musical to reminisce about the groundbreaking fairytale adaptation.
“It was an honour to be part of something so wonderful back then, and even now, and it was multicultural, and it was just so wonderful that children were watching it could just enjoy it and all the different kinds of people that were in it, and not even question it,” Peters says of the musical, which also featured Whitney Houston as the Fairy Godmother.

Added Brandy: “It was a game-changer, like it was just so different, and it just gave everyone an opportunity to just play these iconic characters, and see it in a different way. It was just so magical.”
Twenty-five years later, Alexander says the movie is still resonating with fans.
“It does come up when you meet people often, and they talk about this particular ‘Cinderella‘, and they claim it, and they go ‘Brandy was my Cinderella’,” he explains.
And for Canadian-born Garber, now is the perfect time to introduce a whole new set of viewers to the musical via Disney+.
“It’s the perfect time for it to come out. This is the perfect time,” he says. “There are no mistakes, this is the time.”
“Cinderella” is will begin streaming on Disney+ on Feb. 12.
