Love is the best medicine!
Since the horrible mass shooting at Pulse nightclub in Orlando almost two weeks ago, there has been a ton of support for the victims — and Broadway is making sure they're contributing as much as possible!
Some pretty major names, including Sarah Jessica Parker, Whoopi Goldberg, and Kristen Bell, recently came together to record a cover of Burt Bacharach and Hal David's classic song What the World Needs Now is Love to benefit the Orlando shooting victims and on Tuesday they released their track!

Well now we have even better news as Maya Rudolph and Martin Short had some of the song's performers — Sean Hayes, Megan Hilty, Rosie Perez, and Michael Cerveris — perform the track live on their new show Maya & Marty on Tuesday night!
In a shared message at the begging of the video, the stars expressed their deep feelings of sadness saying:
"All of us in the Broadway community are deeply saddened by the senseless tragedy that occurred in Orlando. We send our love and support and thoughts and prayers to everyone impacted by this act of violence and hate."
