Lin-Manuel Miranda, Broadway Stars Share Orlando Benefit Song: Listen

At the end of last week, we reported that Hamilton star Lin-Manuel Miranda, Sara Bareilles and a slew of other Broadway-affiliated musical geniuses were joining forces to release a song to benefit victims of the tragic mass shooting at Orlando LGBT club Pulse

Well, after nearly 60 other voices decided to contribute, including Audra McDonald, Idina Menzel, Wayne Brady, Matthew Broderick, Kristen Bell, Gloria Estefan, Megan Hilty, Rosie O'Donnell, Sarah Jessica Parker, Sutton Foster, Bernadette Peters, Fran Drescher, Nathan Lane, Sean Hayes, Whoopi Goldberg... you can rest assured we have a masterpiece on our hands, and one that will hopefully help a lot of people.

The Broadway A-listers (and their celeb pals) covered the 1965 Hal David and Burt Bacharach song, "What the World Needs Now Is Love." All of the proceeds from the song will benefit the LGBT Community Center of Central Florida. You can experience it above, and purchase it here.

Next up: listen to our entry-to-Hamilton playlist and listen to our Back of The Class podcast about that crazy-starry mixtape from the popular musical, below.
