Grammy-nominated country singer, Mickey Guyton has made her voice-over debut in the Disney Junior children’s computer-animated television series, Mickey Mouse Funhouse.
In the second segment of the eighth episode, which premiered on October 15, Mickey Mouse and his friends Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Goofy and Pluto head to the Old West town of Sunny Gulch to hear Wanda Warbler, the best country-western singer around, who has a tendency to wander off.
In the character of Wanda, which was designed on her real-life appearance, Guyton performs a new original song titled Won’t Go Wanderin’.
Guyton says, "This is my first time being able to do voice-over work, and it has been so cool to see what I look like as an animated character! I wanted to be a part of Mickey Mouse Funhouse because Mickey Mouse is part of everybody’s life … and my name is Mickey!”

This marks the first episode to feature an actual human character too.
Guyton is no stranger to children’s television. The 38-year-old gave birth to her first child, a son named Grayson, in January with her husband, Grant Savoy.
Guyton made history with her nomination at the Grammy Awards, which made her the first black woman to ever be nominated in a country category, as well as being the first black female country artist to perform her own song at the CMA Awards. CMT recently honoured her as their ‘Breakout Artist of the Year’ during the 2021 CMT Artists of the Year celebration in Nashville on October 15.
She released her first album, Remember Her Name on September 24, in which she co-wrote 15 of the project’s 16 songs. It also features a rendition of Beyonce’s smash hit, If I Were A Boy.
