Broadway’s brightest stars with a musical medley- a virtual performance during President Joe Biden’s inauguration. And it was Shelbie Rassler, a Ft. Lauderdale musical genius and composer, who worked as the sound mixer for this uplifting performance.

Our Kirk Gimenez interviewed Rassler about the experience. Rassler also brought us the "What The World Needs Now" virtual performance when the Coronavirus lockdown first occurred almost a year ago.

Watch the interview for more and for clips from Broadway's musical medley of "Season's of Love" and "Let The Sunshine In."

The performance featured over three dozen of Broadway’s biggest stars including Vanessa Williams, Wayne Brady, Laura Benanti, Rosie Perez, Audra McDonald, and Hamilton alums Christopher Jackson, Renee Elise Goldsberry, Mandy Gonzalez, and Javier Munoz, to name a few.

Broadway expert and musician Seth Rudetsky performed in the band and produced the performance, which he posted on his YouTube channel following the inauguration.
