The two-disc recording, which is simply titled "Live," will be released physically and digitally June 26 via iTunes, CDbaby, Amazon, Dress Circle (pre-orders are now available; first 100 ordered will be autographed by composer-lyricist Alan) and everywhere digital music is available.
An accompanying booklet will include photos provided by each performer heard on the recording. Each artist has also provided his or her thoughts about the song recorded on the new CD. The cover was photographed by Nathan Johnson.
All songs on "Live" were arranged and orchestrated by Jesse Vargas. Background vocals were arranged by Michael McElory, with the exception of the song "I've Already Won," which was arranged by Michael Orland ("American Idol") and Antonio Sol.
A video capturing the creation of the cover art is available by clicking here.
