FINDING WONDERLAND!

Frank Wildhorn, the American composer, and eighty members of the Wildhorn Musical family will simultaneously world premiere a video featuring 53 singers from 12 countries, representing 17 of his musicals, performing the powerful, "Finding Wonderland," from the Broadway Musical, Wonderland. Wildhorn, who has been posting popular "Living Room Concerts," brought together stars including Jeremy Jordan, Laura Osnes, Capathia Jenkins, Constantine Maroulis, amongst the cast from across the globe to support The World Health Organization's Covid19 Response Fund (covid19responsefund.org), the only global organization with a reach as wide as that of the cast on the video, while providing a musical love letter to the world at this unprecedented and unpredictable time.

"We are black and white, American and Chinese, Czech and German, Dutch and Korean, Russian and Turkish - we are everywhere...members of the worldwide Wildhorn Musical Family coming together as a powerful voice to lift the spirits and help unite people across cultures through song and love."

This project is a great example of that, and I hope it will be a light in these dark days."

A letter from Mr. Wildhorn:

Dear Wildhorn Musical Family:

Hope this finds you safe and well in these crazy days! I just wanted to take a moment and express my gratitude and love for the work you' our extraordinary Finding Wonderland project. At the same time, I want you to be aware of how special this particular video is. We are 60 of us, from Buenos Aires, Argentina to Saint Petersburg, Russia...from Tokyo, Japan to Vienna, Austria, the United States, and so many other countries. We are black and white, American and Chinese, Czech and German, Dutch and Korean - we are everywhere...members of the worldwide Wildhorn Musical Family coming together as a powerful voice to lift the spirits and help unit people across cultures through song and love.

I so believe in the power of music as an agent for good, for healing, and to bring people together. You know I always say that music, like love, knows no boundaries. This project is a great example of that, and I hope will be a light in these dark days. Yourworkisbeautiful, soulful, and honest and this is one time in my career where the reality exceeded the dream.

In creating this enormous production, we had so many challenges, especially technically, getting so many together from so many locations. At the end of the day, this represents our very best efforts to honor each and every one of your performances. I hope in every way possible that you share this with your fans and the world. I know if we do this, we will reach millions of people and put some good out into the world. Following an exclusive media premiere, we are going to be releasing this simultaneously around the world. The combined power of your social media can reach millions with our uplifting message of the song and call to action to support the World Health Organization' s COVID-19 Relief Fund - the only global organization with a reach as wide as that of the cast on the video. Everything you'll need to do that is attached.

I look forward to our next musical adventure together. Stay strong and well!

Much love, Frank
