Artists such as Sir Paul McCartney, Woody Guthrie, Dr. Nina Simone, Abbey Lincoln, Lena Horne, Helen Reddy and many more were represented in the material. Natalie was joined onstage by her longtime musical director Mark Hartman, and her band of Broadway All-Stars, as well as singers Kimberly Marable and Tanya Holt.
