(ABC’s “black-ish,” “Dancing with the Stars: Juniors”), Anna Camp (“Pitch Perfect” franchise, the upcoming feature
film “The Wedding Year”), Josh Gad (Disney’s “Frozen”), Wendi McLendon-Covey (ABC’s “The Goldbergs,” “Goosebumps

(host of ESPN’s “SportsCenter”), as well as special musical performances by Luis Fonsi and Tori Kelly.

Bob Burgess and Sharon Baird from the original Mickey Mouse Club will make
a special appearance during the evening’s festivities, honoring 90 years of
the internationally beloved character.

GRAMMY-nominated and five-time Latin GRAMMY-winning singer, songwriter,
musician and producer Luis Fonsi will perform his highly
anticipated new single. Fonsi is one of the leading Latin Music figures of
his generation best known as “The Voice of Pop” with over 20 years of
successful artistic career. From his debut album, “Comenzaré,” to his
latest studio album, “8,” Fonsi has continuously broken sales records while
leading the charts. His undeniable and unique talent, as well as his
extensive lists of radio hits, has allowed him to break barriers, cross
borders and seduce millions of people around the world. Fonsi has been
awarded multiple gold and platinum records in several countries around the
world and has also been the recipient of some of the most prestigious
awards in the music industry including five Latin GRAMMY Awards, 12 Latin
Billboard Awards, eight Premio Lo Nuestro, two American Music Awards, two
Teen Choice Awards, to name a few. His studio album titled “8” released in
2014 was produced by GRAMMY-winning Swedish composer and producer Martin
Terefe. In addition to the album debuting at No. 1 in over nine countries,
Fonsi once again climbed to the No. 1 position with three singles “Corazón
en la Maleta,” “Llegaste Tú” and “Que Quieres de Mi.” In 2015 and 2016,
while writing songs for the new album, Fonsi performed in some of the most
prestigious venues in Latin America with his sold-out “Somos Uno Tour”
while also becoming one of the coaches of the popular music competition
“The Voice Chile.” Fonsi has made history time and time again, breaking
sales and streaming records worldwide with his singles “Despacito,” “Échame
La Culpa” and “Calypso.” The three singles continue topping the charts
around the world including a record-setting 56 Weeks at No. 1 on
Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart and tying the all-time record for the
longest-running No. 1 in history on Billboard’s Hot 100 Chart with
“Despacito.” On Jan. 13, 2017, Fonsi and Daddy Yankee released his new
single, “Despacito.” The follow-up to this global phenomenon is the equally
catchy and sexy “Échame La Culpa” featuring Demi Lovato and his latest hit
“Calypso” featuring Stefflon Don. Since July 1, 2017, Fonsi has been
touring for the last 16 months through Europe, Argentina, Chile, U.S.,
México, Middle East and Asia with his critically acclaimed “Love &
Dance World Tour.”

GRAMMY-nominated singer/songwriter Tori Kelly will perform
the Academy Award®-winning song “Colors of the Wind” from the Disney film
“Pocahontas.” On her new album, “Hiding Place,” Kelly honors her deepest
musical passion and delivers an R&B-infused, infectiously melodic take
on classic gospel. The follow-up to her full-length debut “Unbreakable
Smile” – a 2015 release that premiered at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 –
“Hiding Place” finds the co-star of the 2016 feature film “Sing” teaming up
with 12-time GRAMMY-winning gospel legend Kirk Franklin. With a lush yet
simply adorned sound beautifully suited to Kelly’s incomparable voice, the
Franklin-produced album includes such standouts as the slow-burning,
harmony-infused lead single “Help Us to Love” and the powerfully radiant,
full-choir-driven “Soul’s Anthem.” As she embraces gospel’s boundless
intensity and pushes her vocal performance like never before, “Hiding
Place” offers up what Franklin refers to as “hope-pop” – a classification
that fully resonates with Kelly. “One of the things I want for this album
is for people to feel uplifted and encouraged when they listen,” says the
2016 Grammy Award nominee for Best New Artist, who kicks off the Hiding Place tour October 18th in Atlanta.

The stars announced today join previously announced performers and
presenters Kristen Bell,Sofia Carson, Josh Groban, Tony Hale, Sarah Hyland,Robert A. Iger, NCT 127, Leslie Odom Jr., Meghan Trainor and Zac Brown Band.

Since his big-screen debut in “Steamboat Willie” on Nov. 18, 1928, Mickey
has been the global ambassador for The Walt Disney Company. From the
beloved Mickey Mouse Club to today’s Mickey Mouse cartoon shorts, Mickey’s
optimistic outlook and endearing personality continue to delight fans
around the world every day.

“Mickey’s 90th Spectacular” is produced by Don Mischer
Productions. Don Mischer, Charlie Haykel and Juliane Hare are executive
producers. Don Mischer will direct.
