According to press notes, "Stars from Broadway band together and raise their voices in tribute to the work of singer/songwriter Andrew McMahon. Savvy music mavens know Andrew from his work with his bands Something Corporate and Jack's Mannequin. As a solo artist, his tunes were heard most recently on NBC's 'Smash.' McMahon's passionate, personal lyrics and melodic, piano-driven music are a perfect fit for some of the most exciting performers from the world of musical theatre."
Proceeds benefit McMahon's charity, The Dear Jack Foundation, which provides a powerful voice in the fight against young adult cancer. For more information, visit DearJackFoundation.com.
