AceShowbiz – ABC celebrated Mother’s Day with the airing of “Disney Family Singalong: Volume II” on Sunday, May 10. Filled with numerous performances from celebrities, this second show aiming to raise funds for Feeding America amid the novel coronavirus pandemic saw Katy Perry stealing the spotlight with her lullaby cover.
The pregnant “American Idol” judge delivered a gut-wrenching rendition of “Baby Mine” from the 1941 animated classic “Dumbo“. What made her performance unique was the fact that she was dressed up in full costume of Dumbo’s mother, while her dog, Nugget, sat still in her lap wearing Dumbo get-up.
“Best thing on the Disney sing along [LOL emojis] great costume”, “Tweet update: The best thing about quarantine is #KatyPerry and her dog in Dumbo-inspired elephant costumes” and “Your performance brought me to tears. My son’s favorite movie, when he was young” were some of the positive reactions to her performance.

Not all applauded Katy’s choice of costume though. “She Looks sooooo STUPID,” one viewer tweeted. Meanwhile, another expressed concern at Katy’s dressed up dog. “Poor #dog #KatyPerry don’t make your stay stay in a #dumbo costume,” the commenter wrote alongside a screencapture of Katy’s performance with Nugget.

Also delivering a stunning performance on the show were John Legend and Jennifer Hudson. The two Grammy winners teamed up to deliver their version of “Beauty and the Beast“, a classic love song from the 1991 film of the same name. Before their segment was shown, John took to Twitter to tell Jennifer, “An honor to sing with you!”
Another duet performance gaining praises from viewers was one from Idina Menzel and Ben Platt. The “Frozen (2013)” star and the leading man of “The Politician” belted out their take on another classic ballad, “A Whole New World”, which came from the 1992 Disney movie “Aladdin“.
Hosted by Ryan Seacrest, “Volume II” also featured an individual performance by Halsey and Rebel Wilson. While the “Bad at Love” hitmaker stunned with her cover of “Part of Your World” from “The Little Mermaid“, the “Pitch Perfect” actress offered her take on “Poor Unfortunate Souls” from the same song.
This second “Disney Family Singalong” came one month after ABC hosted the original hour-long concert. Its first show featured the likes of Beyonce Knowles, Ariana Grande and Darren Criss among others as they sang their favorite Disney songs from their living rooms, kitchens and home studios. It aimed to entertain people in self-isolation while raising awareness for charity Feeding America.
