Having a bad day and searching for something to make you feel better? Look no further than Lin-Manuel Miranda singing classic Disney songs. This past weekend the Tony-winning Hamilton creator/star took over Disney Animations official Twitter account as promotion for the upcoming film Moana. Miranda used the opportunity to post several clips of himself briefly performing selections from the Disney songbook.

First came a performance of “Whale of a Tale” from 1954’s 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea.

Miranda stayed in the famed Disney Renaissance period with “I’ll Make a Man Out Of You” from 1998’s Mulan.

Miranda’s version of 1991’s “Gaston” got an extra jolt of star power from Moana star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who made a cameo during the Beauty and The Beast track.

Miranda wrapped things up with performances of The Little Mermaid’s “Daughters of Triton” followed by a preview of an upcoming Moana track.
