As what the great Walt Disney said, “It all started with a mouse.” It’s clear to see that Disney has and continues to touch the lives of many. Whether you visit the Disney Parks or put on some super cute Mickey ears, there’s nothing quite like the magic that Disney brings. Disney celebrated true originality on August 6, 2019 at the inaugural Mickey True Original Summer of Music event at Levi’s Haus of Strauss in Los Angeles, California. There truly was a special feeling in the air at the event as Disney always lets everyone unleash their inner child.
At the sensational event, Nashville singer and guitarist, Devon Gilfillian wowed the crowd with his remarkable performance. Rocking his own Mickey Mouse shirt, Gilfillian had everyone jamming out to his incredible music and he once again left everyone in awe with his great talent. Gilfillian performed several tunes including his hit song, “Troublemaker.”
Devon Gilfillian shared his enthusiasm over performing at the magnificent event and wrote along with a post he shared on Instagram, “Last night was full of so much amazing magic! We had such a blast celebrating the 90th anniversary of @mickeytrueoriginal. Thank you @disney for throwing such an amazing party and letting us provide the soundtrack 🙏🏾💛💫
Guests at the event were able to express their originality as they customized their own Levi’s shirt with Mickey Mouse patches, designs and accessories including adorable Mickey and Minnie Mouse buttons. In addition, attendees were all smiles as they saw their name getting embroidered onto their own Mouseketeer ear hat. Nothing like some awesome Mickey Mouse gear to brighten up someone’s day.
Beats by Dre was also at the event to exhibit their 90th anniversary Mickey Mouse headphones.
Attendees at the event enjoyed a night of Mickey Mouse-inspired excitement, terrific, live music from Devon Gilfillian and tunes from DJ Astronautica, as well as delicious food and drinks. It was a wonderful night celebrating what Disney embodies – being yourself and being original.
Disney’s True Original Summer of Music honors the “True Original” campaign launched last year to celebrate Mickey’s 90th anniversary and showcase the impact this mouse has made on everything from pop culture to art, music, technology and more.
