Youngstown And Steps To Play Disney Special

Play a Disney park, find an audience. That seems to be the idea for two up-and-coming pop acts, Youngstown and Steps, who are gearing up for their first nationally televised special, the Disney Channel's "Youngstown And Steps In Concert."

Youngstown, an all-male trio named after its Ohio hometown, has recently released its debut album, "Let's Roll." Meanwhile, Steps, a British quintet consisting of two men and three women, has already conquered its native Britain with the number one double a-sided single, "Heartbeat"/"Tragedy." The group's first LP, "Step One," has gone platinum four times in the U.K. and is scheduled for release in the U.S. on January 25.

"Youngstown And Steps In Concert" will be taped at Disneyland in Anaheim, California, next month, and the show will premiere on the Disney Channel on February 19.

Disney's "In Concert" series has previously aired performances by the likes of the Backstreet Boys, 'N Sync, and most recently, the pairing of Britney

Spears and Joey McIntyre (see "Britney Spears On Playing Disney With Joey McIntyre").
