When Renee (a fabulous wedding planner) called and asked if I would be interested in helping out for a great cause, I couldn't turn it down. Amigos De Jesus is an orphanage in Honduras which was co-founded in 1997 by a Philadelphia Priest and supported by many local residents. This event was all about embracing everything the orphanage has become and continuing the support. Orphans from Honduras were in attendance and the love and gratitude they displayed was absolutely heartwarming.
Held at the Kimmel Center, Braodway stars from Wicked, Shrek, Next to Normal, and In the Heights performed for supporters and they did not disappoint! It was such an amazing opportunity to give back to the community as well as catch a really great show! It's hard to pick a favorite performance, but when Robin De Jesus performed "Let it Go" in Spanish I had goosebumps.
