Ben Platt Singing "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" Is a Dream We Dared to Dream (That Really Did Come True)

In celebration of Passover, Ben Platt, Billy Porter, Cynthia Erivo, Idina Menzel, Fran Drescher, Dan Levy, and many more stars got together for a virtual Seder to help raise money for the CDC Foundation COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund. Throughout the “Saturday Night Seder” special, the various stars told the story of Passover adding their own unique spin as a way to keep both those familiar with the story and those learning for the first time entertained.

With a roster full of Broadway stars like Platt, Porter, and Erivo, it’s no wonder they included renditions of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” “Let My People Go,” and “When You Believe.” Watch the full hour-long video above to see comedians like Billy Eichner and Nick Kroll add their own Passover commentary. If you’re just interested in the songs, check out Platt at 12:07, Porter (featuring Henry Winkler) at 33:45, and Erivo duetting with Shoshana Bean at 45:07.
