K-pop singer Baek A-yeon will perform at the Disney concert set to take place in Seoul.

According to her agency JYP Entertainment Monday, the singer will feature as a special guest at “Disney In Concert: Live Your Dream,” a Disney-themed musical event that will be held at Sejong Center in central Seoul from May 19-20. Baek will perform “Beauty and the Beast” and “Love Is an Open Door,” theme songs for popular Disney movies “Beauty and the Beast” and “Frozen.”

Concert arranger Ted Ricketts said Baek was cast for her clear voice that recalls to mind Disney characters.

The upcoming concert is part of Disney’s signature world concert series “Disney In Concert,” where Broadway stars perform the biggest hits from Disney movies such as “The Little Mermaid,” “Lion King,”
“Moana” and “Frozen,” to the accompaniment by an orchestra. “Disney in Concert” first landed in Korea in 2014 and has since become an annual event.

The upcoming Seoul leg of the concert will be led by Ditto Orchestra, one of Korea’s beloved chamber groups.

Baek is well known as one of the final three contestants from the first season of Korean audition show series “K-pop Star.” She debuted solo with her first EP ”I’m Baek“ in 2012.
