Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles (GMCLA), one of the country's longest-running and largest LGBTQ arts organizations, has announced that Chrissy Metz, star of NBC's This Is Us; and Shoshana Bean, star of Broadway's Waitress, will join GMCLA's 40th Anniversary Gala Concert. The event, titled GMCLA 40/Stonewall 50, is presented by Hyundai Motor America and commemorates the anniversaries of GMCLA and the Stonewall riots.
Ms. Metz and Ms. Bean will be featured in the first part of the concert, which will include works from the pop, Broadway, and choral cannon. Ms. Metz will perform the acclaimed song "I'm Standing With You" written by Diane Warren, from the film Breakthrough and her hit album. Ms. Bean will perform "She Used to Be Mine" by Sara Bareilles from the hit musical Waitress and will also lead GMCLA, and some surprise guests, in a very new take on a classic Broadway song.
