On Thursday’s episode of ABC’s Good Morning America, stars from Disney on Broadway came together to share a moving performance of Alan Menken’s Go the Distance from Disney’s Hercules and we are still balling.

The performance comes following the recent announcement of the extension of the temporary closure of Broadway and of the upcoming live stream of Disney on Broadway’s 25th Anniversary Concert.

The emotional performance comes from Broadway stars James Monroe Iglehart, Heather Headley, Ryan McCartan, Ciara Renee, Steven Taylor, Jelani Alladin, McKenzie Kurtz, Adrienne Walker, and Michael James Scott. See the full performance in the tweet below from Good Morning America‘s official Twitter account.

For all the Disney Parks fans out there, you may also be familiar with the tearjerking track from the Happily Ever After fireworks show at Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World — a portion of the show which gets us every time. For those missing the magical fireworks show in the wake of the Disney Parks’ temporary closure, be sure to see it virtually from your couch here.

The emotional performance on GMA comes to spread awareness of Disney on Broadway’s 25th Anniversary Concert to benefit BC/EFA live stream. The special will be streamed at 7 p.m. EST. on Monday April 13 and celebrates 25 “magical years” in addition to raising money for Broadway Cares/ Equity Fights AIDS’ COVID-19 Emergency Assistance Fund.

The special will be hosted by Ryan McCartan from his family’s basement. McCartan will remotely interview Disney on Broadway Stars from their homes throughout the duration of the special.

Celebrating 25 Years of Disney on Broadway was first held back on November 4, 2019 and raised over $570,000 for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids and featured a cast of 79 performers and a 15-piece onstage orchestra.

For those still misty eyed over the moving Disney on Broadway video posted above and are in the mood for a little more magic, check out the original performance of the song from Disney’s Hercules below.
