Hollywood Records announced today the signing of McClain Sisters, including China Anne McClain, star of Disney Channel’s hit series A.N.T. FARM, and her sisters Lauryn, and Sierra.  This trio whose captivating talent and undeniable star quality will inevitably end the music industry’s decades-long quest for a best-selling girl-group.

“We are thrilled to have China Anne, Lauryn, and Sierra, join our music family,” commented Executive Vice President of Disney Music Group, Ken Bunt.  “They are three exceptionally talented young artists with a very exciting road ahead of them.”

McClain Sisters lead singer China Anne McClain is an acclaimed young actress who, in addition to starring in Disney Channel’s A.N.T. FARM, a role for which she received a 2012 NAACP Image Award nomination, also starred in the House of Payne television series and the movie The Gospel. The talented trio’s mounting popularity is evidenced by accomplishments such as the A.N.T. FARM soundtrack’s soaring debut at #29 on the Billboard 200, which includes tracks by McClain Sisters “Electronic Apology” and “Perfect Mistake,” as well as notable acting roles in the Tyler Perry feature film Daddy’s Little Girls and a recent performance for more than 72,000 at RODEOHOUSTON 2012.

“We are beyond happy to be joining the Hollywood Records family,” shared the McClain Sisters. “Music has always been a part of our lives and now we cannot wait to share our music with everyone.”

“Rise,” written and performed by McClain Sisters after being inspired by Disneynature’s feature film CHIMPANZEE, is the latest Disney Friends for Change anthem.  With the motivating lyrics “Together we can do anything,” the song captures the central message of the program:  when kids and families work together, they can inspire each other and their communities to make a lasting, positive change in the world.  “Rise” is the fourth Friends for Change anthem to be released with a benefit back to the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund.  This contribution marks nearly $1 million awarded through the music campaign to charities working to protect the planet and conserve nature for future generations.

CHIMPANZEE hits theaters everywhere on April 20th!

SYNOPSIS:                                            

Disneynature takes moviegoers deep into the forests of Africa with “Chimpanzee,” a new True-Life Adventure introducing an adorable young chimp named Oscar and his entertaining approach to life in a remarkable story of family bonds and individual triumph.  Oscar’s playful curiosity and zest for discovery showcase the intelligence and ingenuity of some of the most extraordinary personalities in the animal kingdom. Working together, Oscar’s chimpanzee family—including his mom, Isha, and the group’s savvy leader, Freddy — navigates the complex territory of the forest.

The world is a playground for little Oscar and his fellow young chimps, who’d rather make mayhem than join their parents for an afternoon nap. But when Oscar’s family is confronted by a rival band of chimps, he is left to fend for himself until a surprising ally steps in and changes his life forever.  Directed by Alastair Fothergill (“African Cats” and “Earth”) and Mark Linfield (“Earth”), “Chimpanzee” swings into theaters on Earth Day 2012.

Notes:

– “Chimpanzee” is the fourth release for Disneynature, the first new Disney-branded film label from The Walt Disney Studios in more than 60 years.  The label was launched in April 2008 to bring the world’s top nature filmmakers together to capture a variety of wildlife subjects and stories.

– The first three releases under the Disneynature label—“Earth,” “Oceans” and “African Cats”—are among the top four highest grossing feature-length nature films of all time.

– Walt Disney was a pioneer in wildlife documentary filmmaking, producing 13 True-Life Adventure motion pictures between 1948 and 1960, including “Seal Island” (1948), “Beaver Valley” (1950), “The Living Desert” (1953) and “Jungle Cat” (1958).  The films earned eight Academy Awards®.

In theaters Earth Day 2012, Disneynature’s newest True-Life Adventure introduces Oscar, a young chimp whose playful curiosity and zest for discovery light up the African forest until a twist of fate leaves Oscar to fend for himself with a little help from an unexpected ally.
