Last week, some of Broadway’s biggest stars entered a recording studio to unite their voices to raise money for the victims of the Pulse tragedy in Orlando. Today, Broadway For Orlando has released that single, a recording of Burt Bacharach’s “What the World Needs Now Is Love,” which is produced in conjunction with Playbill.
Made popular by Dionne Warwick in the 60s, this version features vocals from stars like Sara Bareilles, Kristen Bell, Wayne Brady, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Gloria Estefan, Fran Drescher, Whoopi Goldberg, Joel Grey, Sean Hayes, Nathan Lane, Zachary Levi, Idina Menzel, Audra McDonald, Carole King, Sarah Jessica Parker, Mathew Broderick, Rosie O’Donnell, Rosie Perez, Bernadette Peters, Chita Rivera, Marissa Jaret Winokur, BD Wong, and more.
The digital download of the iconic song will be priced at $1.99. It is available for purchase on the label’s website at BroadwayRecords.com right now, and then it will be available on iTunes shortly thereafter.
100% of the proceeds from the sale of the song will benefit the GLBT Community Center of Central Florida.
