Watch the NYC Gay Men’s Chorus Pay Tribute to Orlando
June 13th, 2016 | By Ryan McPhee
In the wake of the attacks at Pulse Nightclub in Orlanda, Florida, the 70th annual Tony Awards were a beautiful reminder that theater can inspire and uplift. As James Corden said in his opening remarks, “Theater is a place where every race, creed, sexuality and gender is equal, is embraced, and is loved.” The New York City Gay Men’s Chorus embraced this sentiment as they performed an arrangement of “Light” from Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey’s Next to Normal on Good Morning America. The group’s delivery of lyrics such as “The price of love is loss, but still we pay; we love anyway” are particularly resonant, and hopefully provide some much needed love and light. Take a look at the touching performance from Times Square below.
