In celebration of World Pride NYC 2019, Broadway stars came together to perform a special rendition of “Seasons of Love” from the hit musical "Rent."

"Waitress" star Shoshana Bean and "Be More Chill" star George Salazar teamed up as soloists for the Pride performance, presented by The Broadway League in partnership with Disney Theatrical Productions.

Ainsley Melham ("Aladdin"), Ryann Redmond ("Frozen"), Patrick Vaill ("Oklahoma!"), James Davis ("Oklahoma!"), Bonita Hamilton ("The Lion King"), Wilson Cruz ("Rent" on Broadway & the National Tour), Callum Francis ("Kinky Boots") also joined in as singers in the ensemble, with Will Van Dyke ("Kinky Boots") on the keyboards and Mason Ingram ("The Prom") on percussion.

The special performance aired on ABC News Live, ABC News' 24/7 breaking news and live events streaming channel, in the one-hour special, "PRIDE on ABC News Live," covering WorldPride NYC 2019, hosted by ABC News correspondents Gio Benitez and Kimberly Brooks.

The iconic song will also be performed at the World Pride Closing Ceremony Concert in Times Square.

Pride Month is celebrated each year in the month of June to honor the 1969 Stonewall Uprising at The Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in the West Village neighborhood of Manhattan. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the "Stonewall uprising" that fueled the fire for a global LGBTQ movement.

Disney is the parent company of ABC News.
