June 2016 - Toronto ON
In light of the current events perhaps we all need to take this song to heart.
Last week, PEOPLE and Playbill revealed that some of Broadway’s biggest stars would come together to record a version of “What the World Needs Now is Love” to benefit the victims of the Orlando, Florida shooting at gay nightclub Pulse on June 12. Now, the track is available to purchase (all of the proceeds from the sale of the song will benefit the GLBT Community Center of Central Florida).
This version features vocals from stars like Sara Bareilles, Kristen Bell, Wayne Brody, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Gloria Estefan, Fran Drescher, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Whoopi Goldberg, Sean Hayes, Nathan Lane, Idina Menzel, Jessie Mueller, Audra McDonald, Carole King, Sarah Jessica Parker, Mathew Broderick, Rosie Perez, Bernadette Peters, and more.
