"Hallelujah Broadway" celebrates the famous Broadway musicals that have made audiences feel they’ve had a near-religious experience.

The amazing Rodrick Dixon of “Three Mo Tenors”, the Chicago Symphony’s powerful soprano Alfreda Burke and the marvelous “Irish Tenor” Anthony Kearns thrill the viewer with powerful songs such as “You'll Never Walk Alone” ("Carousel"), “Someone Like You” ("Jeckyll and Hyde"), “Somewhere” ("West Side Story"), “Bring Him Home” ("Les Miserables"), “Seasons of Love” ("Rent") and medleys from "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat," "Godspell" and "Jesus Christ Superstar."

"Jeckyll and Hyde" leading lady Linda Eder dazzles with “Gold” ("Camille Claudel") and “Electricity” ("Billy Elliot"). Many other emotionally charged songs grace this special shot in Prague’s magnificent baroque Cathedral of St. Simon and St. Jude.

"Halleluiah Broadway" is on Facebook.
