April 6, 2020 -- Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is channeling his character Maui from Disney’s Moana to teach his daughter how to wash her hands.

“You can say the ABCs. But instead, we sing Daddy’s rap portion of ‘You’re Welcome,’ from Moana,” the star shared on Instagram. “We realized a few weeks ago that the rap portion of the song is perfect timing when getting your little ones to have fun washing their hands.”

The CDC says proper hand-washing can help prevent the spread of coronavirus. The agency is urging people to wash their hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds to protect themselves from infection.
