A slew of Broadway and stage alums performed while practicing social distancing during the One World: Together At Home concert April 18, organized by Global Citizen. The event raised over $120 million for the World Health Organization.
Among the highlights were Tony winners Ben Platt and Leslie Odom, Jr. singing songs from the heart (the latter with wife and fellow Broadway alum Nicolette Robinson), Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson returning to Cats, Jennifer Lopez channeling Barbra Streisand, and a star-studded group uniting for “The Prayer.”
