ABC has announced that the “Disney Family Singalong: Volume II,” produced by Done+Dusted, will air on Mother’s Day, May 10.

The one-hour event, which will begin at 7 p.m. EST, will be hosted by Ryan Seacrest. Disney+ will subsequently stream the program.

The second “Disney Family Singalong” will feature “all-new star-studded performances, inventive at-home choreography and even more Disney magic,” according to ABC. “The animated Mickey also returns to guide the on-screen lyrics, allowing audiences, families, roommates and loved ones to follow along in perfect harmony with their favorite celebrities as they sing beloved Disney melodies.”

ABC said Chloe x Halle, Billy Eichner, Hayley Erbert, Halsey, Josh Gad, Donald Glover, Derek Hough, Julianne Hough, Idina Menzel, Miguel, Keke Palmer, Ben Platt, Seth Rogen, Anika Noni Rose, Walter Russell III, Rebel Wilson, Shakira, and Disney on Broadway stars Merle Dandridge, Heather Headley, Adam Jacobs, Caissie Levy, Kara Lindsay, Kevin Massey and Josh Strickland, will be performing from their living room studios and kitchen stages for the Mother’s Day special.

ABC is coming with this follow-up special following the resounding success of inaugural “Disney Family Singalong.”

The first volume, which was aired on April 16, got a rating of 2.6 among adults 18-49, the biggest same-day rating in the demo for any network primetime program since the Oscars. It attracted 10.3 million viewers.

The first volume featured at-home performances from Ariana Grande, Josh Groban, Darren Criss, Demi Lovato, Alan Menken, Elle Fanning, Tori Kelly, Christina Aguleara, Michael Bublé, Kristin Chenoweth, Auli’i Cravalho, Luke Evans, Jordan Fisher, Josh Gad, Derek Hough, Julianne Hough, Little Big Town, Donny Osmond, Amber Riley, and John Stamos.

“‘The Disney Family Singalong’ was a beautiful event that united millions of households across the country, filling our hearts with joy and song, and also providing much-needed nourishment to fill the bellies of our neighbors facing hunger,” Claire Babineaux-Fontenot, CEO of Feeding America, said regarding the debut event in a statement.
