Musical performances and inspiring family stories were featured prominently on tonight’s MDA Show of Strength Telethon. The Muscular Dystrophy Association’s telethon aired for two hours on Sunday on ABC television stations nationwide.

As of 11 p.m. Pacific time, MDA’s tote totaled $54.1 million. Telethon donations will be accepted through midnight on Labor Day, when MDA will announce the final total.

The tote consists of generous donations made by the American public through phone, online and texts, and contributions made by national sponsors who help MDA through their own fundraising campaigns leading into the telethon.

Highlights of the 48th annual telethon included multiplatinum group the Backstreet Boys opening the show with a dual performance of their newest single "In A World Like This" and one of the most popular hits of their 20-year career, "I Want It That Way."

Performances during the nationally broadcast show included: teen pop sensation and 2013 MTV Video Music Awards "Artist to Watch" recipient Austin Mahone performing his hit single "What About Love;” platinum-selling country star Darius Rucker performing his summer anthem "Radio" from his
