EXCLUSIVE: Fran Drescher, Carole King, Chita Rivera Record Broadway for Orlando Single
The stars of the Great White Way create a new version of a Burt Bacharach hit.
The toast of Broadway gathered earlier this week for a charitable recording of the single "What the World Needs Now Is Love" to benefit the victims of the Orlando shooting massacre at Pulse nightclub. Produced by Broadway Records, Seth Rudetsky, and James Wesley, the single will be available as a digital download beginning June 20.
"What the World Needs Now Is Love" (music by Burt Bacharach and lyrics by Hal David) is executive-produced by Rudetsky, Wesley, and Dean, and produced by Michael J. Moritz Jr. and Michael Croiter. Music direction is by Rudetsky, Steve Marzullo, and Marc Shaiman, orchestrations are by Cameron Moncur, and vocal arrangements are by Rudetsky. Marzullo conducts the 25-piece orchestra.
One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to the LGBT Center of Central Florida.
