As previously reported, he fills the role of the bird Roberto, the ex-boyfriend of Jewel, the macaw voiced by Anne Hathaway. In the clip, the two are reunited, and Roberto is clearly happy to see her again.

Roberto sings, “Can you feel what I feel/The day is coming fast/Our precious Jewel has returned/I’ll be the first to sing welcome back.”

In the sequel, Jewel and her husband, fellow macaw Blu, decide to leave behind their big city life in Rio de Janeiro and head to the Amazon rainforest. The film, which also features the voices of Jesse Eisenberg, Jamie Foxx, Tracy Morgan, Andy Garcia, and Kristen Chenoweth, opens April 11.
