NEW YORK (AP) — Broadway and Hollywood stars will help add some glamour to this year’s Tony Awards, with appearances expected by Bradley Cooper, Kevin Bacon, Clint Eastwood, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Will Ferrell and Liev Schreiber.
This morning the 68th Annual Tony Awards nominations were announced and some well-known stories were among the leaders. Broadway musicals about the life of Carole King and Janis Joplin, plus the new show featuring Frozen’s Idina Menzel and the Hedwig and the Angry Inch revival were all among the nominees.
Steven Tyler, P!nk, Lady Gaga, Sara Bareilles, Zac Brown, Miranda Lambert, Miguel and Alicia Keys were among the many artists who paid tribute last night to one of the greatest songwriters of popular music.
Newly announced performers include: Sara Bareilles, P!nk, will.i.am, Miguel, Alicia Keys, Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles, Train, Martina McBride, Jakob Dylan, Darlene Love, Amy Grant, Gloria Estefan, and many more.
One of the most talented and successful female songwriters in history’s life story is now becoming a Broadway show and, very appropriately, a musical.
Carole King will join the ranks of Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney and Barbra Streisand to be celebrated in January as the 2014 MusiCares Person of the Year.
To say there was massive interest in the concert thrown to benefit The One Fund Boston would be an understatement. When the show went on sale just under a month ago, tickets were gone in less than 5 minutes.

Tonight, a number of classic rock legends (and a few other artists) will perform at an all-star concert to benefit the victims of the Boston bombing.
Some of New England’s greatest musical exports are coming together for “Boston Strong: An Evening Of Support And Celebration,” a huge fundraiser to take place at Boston’s TD Garden on May 30. Tickets from the show will benefit the One Fund Boston, a foundation set up by Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick and Boston mayor Thomas Menino to help those most affected by the tragic events that occurred on April 15.
