There's a reason it's called a political "party"! The Great White Way's brightest gathered together to support presidential nominee Hillary Clinton on July 27 at the Democratic convention in Philadelphia. Audra McDonald, Adrienne Warren, Ben Vereen, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Darren Criss, Idina Menzel, Kristin Bell, Lena Hall, Stephanie J. Block and Tyne Daly were among the Main Stem stars who performed the chart-topping “What the World Needs Now Is Love." The Broadway community originally gathered together to record and perform the single following the attack on Orlando. "What the World Need Now Is Love" joins the viral cover of Rachel Platten's "Fight Song" in Clinton's roster of DNC anthems. Watch the full performance (from 1:15) below!
