First Look: A.N.T. Farm's Chyna Channels Aretha Franklin, Ella Fitzgerald and Janet Jackson
Disney Channel’s A.N.T. Farm kicks off Black History Month this Friday at 8/7c with an episode that finds Chyna channeling three African-American music icons — and TVLine has a first look at the far-out half-hour.
In the episode “influANTces,” Chyna (played by China Anne McClain) is struggling to write a song for her Black History Month presentation, so she locks herself in a recording booth until she comes up with an idea. When she then dozes off, she embarks on a dreamy time-trip, envisioning herself as Ella Fitzgerald, Aretha Franklin and Janet Jackson.
Coming out of the dream, Chyna churns out a version of the series’ “Exceptional” theme song, weaving in lyrics that pay tribute to the great women who came before her.
