Well after the worst mass shooting in U.S. history took place just over a week ago, some of the biggest names in Broadway came together to record a cover of the 1965 hit What the World Needs Now Is Love to raise funds for the LGBT Center of Central Florida. As we previously reported, the A-list group — including Sara Bareilles, Sarah Jessica Parker, Whoopi Goldberg, and many more — recorded the song on June 15 at the Avatar Studios in NYC.

We're happy to report that the music video for this inspirational song dropped on Monday! Bless.

Other soloists include Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Matthew Broderick, Sutton Foster, and countless others. Not to mention, many of the talented artists involved with this song will perform the number on Maya & Marty at 10/9c on NBC. LOVES it!

Be sure to ch-ch-check out the powerful performance for yourself (above)! Don't forget you can purchase the song at BroadwayRecords.com for $1.99 and the track will also be available on iTunes.

We've got some wicked good news for you!

It's been over a year since we last heard about the movie adaptation of Wicked, but we're happy to report we just got our first official news about the film on Thursday.

Universal Pictures decided to surprise fans out of the blue with an announcement on Twitter this morning, revealing that Wicked: The Movie will be flying into theaters in time for… Christmas 2019!!!

WE HAVE TO WAIT 3.5 YEARS?!?!

While we now have a date to look forward to, there's still no word on who will be taking over Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth's iconic roles.

Although, we think it's pretty obvious Lea Michele and Kristen Bell were made to play Elphaba and Glinda, respectively!

Lea has more than proven her musical capabilities on years of Glee, and K-Bell has done the same in Disney's Frozen AND in live action in Reefer Madness: The Musical.

This could very well be the most anticipated movie musical of all time… so Universal better get started if they wanna be done by December 20, 2019!

Who do U want to see travel to the land of Oz??

Kristen Bell, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Sarah Jessica Parker, & Many MORE Show Support With Their Singing Voices In 'Broadway For Orlando'!

no title

This is the best news to come out after the Orlando shooting so far!

The LGBT community was rocked to its core early Sunday morning when 49 of our brothers and sisters were senselessly murdered while partying at Pulse Nightclub.

Authorities and politicians are currently fighting amongst themselves whether to call this a foreign or domestic terrorist attack, or whether to blame the deaths on gun control… but we know this was first and foremost a hate crime.

That's why it's more important than ever for everyone who identifies as queer — as well as our allies — to support one another in our time of need.

Luckily, the Broadway community could not be tighter with us gays, which is why we're happy to report that Broadway For Orlando is here to help!

Celebs like Kristen Bell, Sara Bareilles, Sarah Jessica Parker, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Idina Menzel, and sooooo many more will be raising money for the LGBT Center of Central Florida with a musical theater cover of Burt Bacharach's What the World Needs Now Is Love!

Ch-ch-check out the all-star list of Broadway talent lending their voices to Orlando (below)!!!

One color, so many looks!

Heidi Klum, Jessica Alba, Serayah, and Idina Menzel all donned black to the Billboard Music Awards – but they couldn't look more different.

First up was Heids, who returned from Cannes, rocking a midi dress with shoulder detailing. She completed the look with loose locks and simple makeup.

Next was Miz Alba who's Zuhair Murad outfit read like a Beyoncé Formation backup dancer with thigh-high boots and sass galore! Serayah's getup was sexy AF too, showing off her toned tummy and teeny figure. A John Hardy choker finished it off!

And rounding out the quad squad was Idina in a super figure flattering Michael Costello bodycon dress.

These ladies stayed simple in hue and nailed it!
