Corbin Bleu Is Jesus … On Broadway!

Filed under: Music MinuteBroadway Babies

Well, well! Look who's all grown up…!

It's hard to think that it's already been six years since Corbin Bleu danced into our lives in Disney's High School Musical and since then, he's been keeping busy on Broadway!

Corbin first appeared on the Broadway stage in 2010, when he starred in In the Heights and now, he's been brought on for another production, Godspell!!!

Check out Corbin, as a SUPER hot Jesus, performing Beautiful City (above)!

He sounds GREAT!!

Bleu took the lead April 17, taking over for Hunter Parrish in the first ever Broadway revival of the musical!!!

We're sure we'll be seeing MUCH more of Corbin on Broadway in the future!

…or at least we hope! LOLz!

Lin-Manuel Miranda

This is such a cool program!

Thanks to Tony and Grammy Award-winning artist Lin-Manuel Miranda, the Lincoln Medical and Mental Health Center in the Bronx is offering local independent artists health services in exchange for their creative services.

For every hour they perform or lead a creative activity at the hospital, artists who can't afford health insurance earn 40 "health credits", equal to $40, toward medical care.

Ouch! You, too, bb??

Well, she put up a fight, we'll give her that!

When you're a former American Idol contestant and you can't sell records, there's only one option: Broadway!

Jordin Sparks is the latest has-been to come to this sobering realization, so she'll be playing Nina Rosario in the production of In The Heights from August 19-November 14th!

She says:

“It’s always been one of my dreams to perform on Broadway. This is a brand new experience for me. I look so forward to spending time in New York City and joining this talented cast and my favorite new musical.”

Who wants to take bets on how long it will take her to realize this is the best she's gonna get and extend that run full-time??

Well, sort of. It looks as though Justin's trying to keep as much distance as he can from Jessica! And as we can see, she's just NOT taking the hint!!

Poor thing!

Cling to that man, honey! That's the only thing keeping you two together at this point!!
