Latter-day Saint father-daughter duo performs ‘Meant to Be’ on ‘Ellen’


Claire and Dave Crosby are meant to be on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”

The father-daughter duo have frequented “Ellen” since 2017, and this time the duo harmonized to the Bebe Rexha/Florida Georgia Line hit “Meant to Be.”

Claire and her father, who are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, first appeared on “Ellen” when she was just four years old. “Ellen” contacted the singers after their video for “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” was viewed more than 150 million times. During the show, Ellen DeGeneres asked Claire if she remembered coming on the show for the first time.

“Not very well, because it was so long ago,” Claire told DeGeneres honestly.

During the show, Claire also played the ukelele while singing “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.” The ukelele was a gift from DeGeneres when Claire performed on the show in February 2018. Following Claire and Dave’s performance, DeGeneres gifted Claire a variety of instruments because Claire expressed a desire to learn to play a multiple instruments.

In October, the Crosbys released a YouTube video in partnership with Walt Disney World where Claire sang 13 different princess songs in one medley.

Claire — who turned six in October — was five when the video was shot. The songs included:

  • “Snow White”: “Someday My Prince Will Come”
  • “Cinderella”: “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes”
  • “Sleeping Beauty”: “Once Upon a Dream”
  • “Little Mermaid”: “Part of Your World”
  • “Beauty and the Beast”: “Belle Reprise”
  • “Aladdin”: “A Whole New World”
  • “Mulan”: “Reflection”
  • “Pocahontas”: “Colors of the Wind”
  • “Princess and the Frog”: “Almost There”
  • “Tangled”: “At Last I See the Light”
  • “Frozen”: “For the First Time in Forever”
  • “Frozen”: “Let it Go”
  • “Moana”: “How Far I’ll Go”
