Over the Moon, a spellbinding collection of original lullabies by Broadway composers, will inspire wedding love songs for generations.
Broadway mavens as well as grandparents, new parents and babies will find a gentle space in this collaboration among great names in musicals. The passion in this album makes this lyrically rich collection work as love songs.
New creations by Stephen Sondheim, Stephen Schwartz, Rupert Holmes and many other composers and lyricists are interpreted by Broadway’s brightest singers, including Audra McDonald, Donna Murphy and Aniki Noni Rose. This two-disc set soothes the soul, sparks love’s flame and does real good — its proceeds benefit breast cancer research.
The project was inspired by the belief that everyone needs comfort, from babies to people coping with breast cancer and those who love them. Overthemoonbroadway.com
