Country superstar and Broadway veteran Jennifer Nettles has joined Tony Award winner Alex Lacamoire for a special video recording of the Charles Strouse-Martin Charnin standard “Tomorrow” from Annie.
The recording is accompanied by a video that shows scenes from September 11th, the Civil Rights movement, the Vietnam War, and Hurricane Katrina. “As the song sings of hope, the collage video also shows reasons we have hope: We have been through challenging times together as a country before,” says Nettles in a statement. “I hope this song lets you feel all that you need to feel. And then I hope it reminds you that, indeed, the sun will come out tomorrow.”
Nettles played Roxie Hart in Chicago in 2015 and is contemplating a CD of musical theater standards. Her many acting credits include Harriet, opposite Tony winner Cynthia Erivo, Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors and The Righteous Gemstones.
