Photo Flash: Broadway All-Stars Prep for Tonight's Performance on NBC's MAYA & MARTY
Broadway's top musical artists will appear on tonight's telecast of "Maya & Marty" on NBC to perform "What the World Needs Now Is Love," an updated version of the classic Burt Bacharach/Hal David song that is helping to support the devastated LGBT community of Orlando, Fla. NBC has just released a first look at the group together - check it out below!
The appearance marks the first time the song will be performed outside the recording studio by this all-star Broadway lineup.
Soon after the Orlando shooting, approximately 60 of Broadway's top stars - as well as those currently in Los Angeles and Miami - contributed their talents to record what is being titled the "Broadway for Orlando" initiative. The song and accompanying video is currently sold onBroadwayRecords.com and will be available on iTunes with all proceeds going to the LGBT Center of Central Florida.
