Broadway stars band together to send message of love

Via Playbill.com, a heart-warming response to terror:

A chorus of Broadway celebrities raised their voices in song in response to the June 12 Orlando shooting massacre, the worst in U.S. history. Sara Bareilles, Carole King, Nathan Lane, Audra McDonald, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Sarah Jessica Parker and dozens more gathered June 15 at Avatar Studios to sing a benefit single of “What the World Needs Now is Love.” Playbill was on hand to capture the moment for an accompanying music video of the song, which is produced by Seth Rudetsky, James Wesley and Van Dean of Broadway Records. Click here for the digital download of the single. 100% of the proceeds will benefit the LGBT Center of Central Florida.
