Broadway stars rally for Orlando in song

- Broadway celebrities have joined together in response to the June 12 Orlando shooting massacre at Pulse nightclub, the worst in U.S. history.

The group Broadway for Orlando includes some of the industry's biggest names, such as Sara Bareilles, Carole King, Nathan Lane, Audra McDonald, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Sarah Jessica Parker and dozens more.  They gathered on June 15 at Avatar Studios to sing a benefit single of the 1965 hit “What the World Needs Now is Love.”

An accompanying music video of the song, produced by Seth Rudetsky, James Wesley and Van Dean of Broadway Records can be seen below (scroll down to view).  Click here for the digital download of the single, priced at $1.99.  It is also be available on iTunes here.   All proceeds will benefit the LGBT Center of Central Florida.
