For World AIDS Day Broadway Sings For Pride Offers Ovation.
On the eve of World AIDS Day, December 1, 2017, award-winning non for profit Broadway Sings For Pride  has released a special tribute to AIDS pioneer Ruth Coker Burks performed by Eden Espinosa (Broadway’s Wicked and Rent), Brock Ciarlelli (ABC Television’s The Middle), Daniel Quadrino (Broadway’s Newsies and Wicked), Cody Scott Lancaster (Broadway’s Rock of Ages) and Tym Moss (Girl, A Lopsided Tree Won’t Ruin Christmas).
Filmed on Monday, June 20, 2016, Broadway Sings For Pride honored AIDS and LGBTQ activist Ruth Coker Burk, dubbed The Cemetery Angel at their annual Pride event. Ruth had no idea her story would be shared during their Pride concert.
Although she had no formal medical training, in the darkest hour of the American AIDS epidemic, Burks cared for hundreds of dying people, many of them gay men who had been abandoned by their families. She buried over three dozen of them with her own two hands, after their families refused to claim their bodies.
Her story is retold with permission from David Koon, Arkansas Times.

Broadway Sings for Pride, is a multiple award-wining is a non-for-profit organization that brings together Broadway talent, activists and celebrities to educate the public, raise awareness of the needs of LGBTQ youth, and support these young people so that they may reach their full potential.

The one-night-only benefit event, entitled “Ovation”, featured the best performers in the realm of film, television and theater! and you can watch it right here.
