Jonathan David Sloate Releases New Single 'If You Believe'
Composer, lyricist and playwright Jonathan David Sloate releases new single entitled "If You Believe" featuring stellar performances from Broadway's Rodney Hicks (Come From Away, The Scottsboro Boys, Jesus Christ Superstar, Rent) and Max von Essen (Anastasia, An American in Paris, Evita, Les Miserables) along with the 59-piece Prague Symphony Orchestra. "If You Believe" is available on iTunes, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Spotify, Pandora, CDBaby, and all other major digital platforms worldwide.
"'If You Believe' is about the indefatigable theme of love. This song explores the elusive and mysterious anima that is conjured when a magnetizing and transformative connection takes hold between two people and the courage required to embrace true love. Rodney and Max give powerful and tender performances. It's something special too when you have such a large traditional orchestra to support them, a precious rarity and theatrical treasure for Broadway audiences," ponders Sloate.
This song follows Jonathan David Sloate's (music, lyrics, book) previously released concept albums for two of his original musicals, The New Picasso and The Tower of Babel.
