The Hollywood Bowl hosted its 15th Annual Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame concert last night, June 21, featuring Hall of Fame inductees Emmy and Tony-winner Kristin Chenoweth, iconic all-female band The Go-Go's, and the eclectic band Pink Martini. Presenters included Oscar and Emmy winner Helen Hunt, Grammy-nominated singer Natasha Bedingfield, Hollywood icon Barbara Eden, actress/comedienne Carol Burnett, and Oscar-nominated actress Taraji P. Henson, as well as a special guest appearance by Lea Michele.

This is just a tease, but we couldn't resist sharing a preview taken from social media from the special event before revealing our exclusive and official footage later today! Stay tuned!
Chenoweth and Michele first performed together on the television series GLEE in 2009, when Chenoweth's recurring character 'April Rhodes' and Michele's 'Rachel Berry' sang "Maybe This Time" from CABARET.
The annual kick-off to the Bowl season also featured the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra (HBO), led by its dynamic Principal Conductor Thomas Wilkins, as well as a performance by Youth Orchestra Los Angeles (YOLA). The Opening Night at the Hollywood Bowl benefit concert raised more than $1 million for the Los Angeles Philharmonic's many education and community programs, which serve more than 150,000 youth, families and teachers every year.
