Today, an additional Disney Legend was added to that list.

Singer Christina Aguilera, who started her career as a member of Disney Channel’s The All New Mickey Mouse Club, will join Robert Downey, Jr., Bette Midler, James Earl Jones, Ming-Na Wen and others on the Disney Legends ceremony stage.

Over the years, Aguilera has appeared on dozens of Disney television shows and specials, including ABC’s Dancing with the Stars and, most recently, the 2019 telecast of Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest. She was also featured on the ABC Studios hit series Nashville in 2015, and performed the hit pop version of “Reflection” from Mulan for the animated film’s end credits and soundtrack.

During her three-decade career as an entertainer, Christina has earned multiple Grammy® Awards, sold more than 43 million records and achieved five No. 1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Hosted by Disney CEO Bob Iger, the Disney Legends Awards ceremony will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, August 23, in Hall D23 of the Anaheim Convention Center. Disney Legends Award recipients will also participate in a handprint ceremony at the end of the event, and their bronzed prints will be displayed in the Disney Legends Plaza at the Company’s Burbank headquarters.

Admission to the ceremony will be on a first-come, first-served basis and is included in the price of a ticket to D23 Expo 2019.

Single-day tickets for Friday and Sunday of D23 Expo 2019 are still available. For more information on tickets and D23 Expo visit D23Expo.com.
