"You Matter started as a labor of love and came out of a deep need to keep creating music together, but apart, during this long COVID intermission," Leung said. "The project started off with a beautiful original song written by my music director, Gary Adler. The song was inspired by the pandemic. We did the whole thing virtually, without ever seeing each other in person. And we wanted to share some of this love with our friends at Broadway Cares, an organization near and dear to my heart. So many of the annual Broadway Cares events have been cancelled due to COVID-19 and we wanted to help."

Songs include two new Adler originals, "You Matter" and "Zoom with You," with lyrics by Phoebe Kreutz. Joining "Go the Distance/Hero" are Mary Ann McSweeney on bass, Brian Koonin on guitar and Michael Croiter on drums. Jojo Engelbert (regional productions of Fun Home, The Secret Garden) joins in a duet of "Somewhere" from West Side Story. The EP also includes a cover of "Proud of Your Boy" from Aladdin. JJ Johnson plays viola on three of the tracks. All music has been recorded at home and is being engineered by Eli Engelbert, who also created the beats to "Zoom with You."

You Matter will be available for download and streaming on all platforms beginning July 24, 2020.
