Jacob Langfelder in partnership with Arts-For-All, Jill Bernard and Rashad Chambers presented a one-night-only concert on Monday, featuring Tony and Grammy Award-winner Jennifer Holliday, along with FUN HOME Tony winner Michael Cerveris, Tony-winning star of the upcoming Roundabout Theatre production of SHE LOVES ME, Laura Benanti, and THE COLOR PURPLE's Rema Webb, along with some of her fellow cast members, including Jennifer Hudson. BroadwayWorld has photos from the event below!

The concert was presented at 42West. The format was reminiscent of SiriusXM's Broadway Names with Julie James, where listeners catch an inside glimpse through one-on-one chats with the stars. James hosted this star-studded Broadway Names LIVE!, music directed by Emmy Winner Michael Croiter. Also in attendance were Jennifer Hudson's fellow American Idol alum, Constantine Maroulis, as well as William Finn, and cast members from Disney's THE LION KING and THE BOOK OF MORMON.

SUPERGIRL's Laura Benanti offered a sneak peak of her next Broadway role, performing "Vanilla Ice Cream" from SHE LOVES ME. Michael Cerveris sang "Life On Mars" with Andrew Nielson on cello in tribute to the late David Bowie. THE COLOR PURPLE's Rema Webb brought the house down singing "Change" from A NEW BRAIN with composer William Finn in the audience.

Holliday's headlining set of eight songs included the classic "And I Am Telling You, I'm Not Going" which brought the sold-out crowd, including Hudson, to tears and to their feet. Afterward, Hudson joined Holliday backstage to congratulate and thank her for her "inspirational performance."
