West End and Broadway star Marisha Wallace (Dreamgirls, Waitress, Aladdin) has released a glorious and soulful cover of the timeless ‘Tomorrow’ from the musical Annie in aid of the vital work of Broadway Cares and MAD Trust.
100% of the funds raised from the purchase and streaming of the new single will be donated to both organisations to help theatre professionals in the US and UK who have been left out of work due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This is the first time Broadway Cares and MAD (Make A Difference) Trust has ever partnered together to receive a joint donation.
“Tomorrow is a song I’d listen to when I needed some positivity to get me through the tough times – and boy, do we need that now more than ever,” says Marisha from her apartment in London where she has been quarantining since March.
The track was self-recorded entirely from her apartment and then shipped over to and produced by music producer, Steve Anderson (Kylie Minogue, Britney Spears).
Marisha added: “I wanted to give this song new life. I recorded it in my living room and cried between takes. It was healing me, and I wanted it to heal others.
“So, I called my friends and all the fans to stand with me. When we sing the lyrics of ‘Tomorrow’ we stand in solidarity that together we will get through this dark time for our community. The world may feel darker than ever but one thing I do know – the sun will come out tomorrow.”
The video features many stars of stage and screen including Katharine McPhee, Lea Salonga, Leslie Odom Jr, Ledisi, Beverley Knight, Ben Forster, Alex Newell, Nina West and Kerry Ellis joining in virtually from their homes.
