BWW EXCLUSIVE: Watch The West End Men Sing 'Defying Gravity'

BroadwayWorld is delighted to give you the exclusive first look at this new video of the West End Men singing "Defying Gravity" from Wicked. Watch the video below!

This special West End Men online performance features vocals from Daniel Koek, James Bisp, Daniel Boys, Alexis Gerred and Ashley Stillburn. It's dedicated to "our heroes in the NHS and Care Sector".

Matt Abrams, who organised this project and supervised their 2019 Bangkok concert, said: "I wanted to galvanise people's energy and enthusiasm for music again during this unique time. I discussed the idea with producer Paul Morrisey, and we agreed this would be the perfect choice for a project like this. I wanted to involve as many musicians as possible, and for us all to have something to show for our time during lockdown. It's been a genuine thrill to be able to continue being musically active, and I am so grateful to everyone who has been involved."
