Earlier this week at Disneyland park, we had the privilege of checking in with global superstar and Grammy Award-winning recording artist Brandy, who’s celebrating the official kickoff of The Walt Disney Company’s Ultimate Princess Celebration!

To kick off the celebration, Brandy, who starred as the beloved princess in “The Wonderful World of Disney, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella,” has recorded a new original song called “Starting Now,” which you can stream online right now! If you listen closely, you’ll hear lyrics inspired by some favorite Disney Princess songs.

From the steps of Sleeping Beauty Castle, Brandy shared with us that it’s a dream to be a part of the celebration and that the anthem is meant to encourage people to be kind and loving toward one another.

The “Starting Now” single, produced by Grammy Award nominee Oak Felder and written by Jason Mater, Jordan Powers, and Darren Criss, was released by Walt Disney Records on May 21. Fans can also listen to their favorite Disney Princess songs now on a curated playlist from Walt Disney Records.

Check out the behind-the-scenes video below to hear from Brandy on her awesome experience recording “Starting Now.”

The Ultimate Princess Celebration is a yearlong event spotlighting the courage and kindness these Disney heroes inspire in fans all around the world. From Cinderella’s generosity and Belle’s ingenuity to Mulan’s selflessness and Moana’s adventurous spirit, Disney is honoring these strong heroes through music, experiences, products, and a campaign to give back to children around the country. 

This is exactly what we need right now!
