The pop singer crooned "Hallelujah" for a lucky ''After Midnight'' crowd.
Tony Award winner and Actors Fund chairman Brian Stokes Mitchell made a surprise appearance on the stage of the Brooks Atkinson Theatre following the performance of After Midnight on Friday evening. He announced that The Actors Fund received a call from a supporter who pledged a $10,000 donation if k.d. lang — the production's newest guest star — agreed to perform her iconic rendition of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" for the Broadway crowd. Lang consented to the special encore performance and won a standing ovation from the elated audience. Take a look at photos from the impromptu musical treat.
