Disney announced a second show last week, revealing Shakira, Lion King star Donald Glover and Frozen’s Idina Menzel would all feature. It has now added more stars to the list.

As well as Perry and Legend, Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson, Disney Channel actress Sabrina Carpenter and Broadway star Tituss Burgess will feature.

Disney said Perry will be performing Baby Mine from Dumbo while Legend and Hudson will team up for a rendition of Beauty And The Beast.

Other confirmed performances include Shakira singing Try Everything from 2016 animated blockbuster Zootopia and Menzel joining Broadway star Ben Platt for a duet of A Whole New World from Aladdin.

Glover is set to reunite with his Lion King remake co-stars Seth Rogen and Billy Eichner for a performance of Hakuna Matata.

The Disney Family Singalong: Volume II, hosted by Ryan Seacrest, will air in the US on May 10 and will be available to stream on Disney+ “in the days that follow”, the company said.

Money raised will go to food bank charity Feeding America and its work feeding families amid the coronavirus pandemic.
