In support of the Orlando shooting, Broadway came together to record an inspiring and heartfelt piece, Burt Barach’s “What the World Needs Now is Love.”
In addition to recording the song, a small video was made of the recording to highlight the vast community of Broadway stars that came together to record this piece. The star power in the video is phenomenal with the likes of Gloria Estefan, Sarah Jessica Parker, Whoopi Goldberg, Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Lin Manuel Miranda, Sean Hayes, Wayne Brady, and the list goes on and on.
The song is available on iTunes and Broadway Records. All proceeds of the song will go to the LGBT Center of Central Florida, which helps the victims and survivors of the Orlando shooting.
Be prepared for tears as the voices of this wonderful melody show why the world truly needs love following the tragedy of the Orlando shooting.
