Watch Broadway’s Morgan James Perform “Gethsemane” From The All-Female Jesus Christ Superstar Album


This exclusive performance precedes the April 29 release of Jesus Christ Superstar: Highlights From Recording The All-Female Cast In The Studio.

Jesus Christ Superstar: Highlights from recording the all-female cast in the studio– featuring tunes from Andrew Lloyd Webber and the Tim Rice musical recorded by an all-female cast, orchestra and engineers – is out April 29 on all digital music services, as part of the She Is Risen project by Morgan James.

“Personally, I’ve never been in a creative space with so many women,” shares Morgan James, who sings the role of Jesus on the album. “Everyone says women can’t work together, and that’s just not true. We’re so strong when we’re together, and I just felt that love in the room and that camaraderie and that sisterhood. .” Watch James’ exclusive performance of “Gethsemane” in the video above.

Soul singer and Broadway alum James (divine spell) leads the cast as Jesus Christ, with Bad and Waitress star Bean as Judas Iscariot, and The purple color Tony winner Cynthia Erivo as Mary Magdalene. They are joined by Grammy winner Ledisi as Simon, comedian Bridget Everett as King Herod, Revenge of a Blonde star Orfeh as Pilate and Tony winner Debbie Gravitte.

The recording follows two previous EP releases. The final version adds “The Temple”, “Damned for All Time”, “The Last Supper”, “Pilate and Christ” and “Trial Before Pilate” to the 10 tracks previously released as She is Risen: Volume I and She is risen: Volume II.

The project began with a concert in 2017 at the Highline Ballroom in New York, a brainchild of James.

Jesus Christ Superstar: Highlights From Recording The All-Female Cast In The Studio is led by executive producers Dawn Kamerling and Richard Amelius, producers Meg Toohey and James, and engineers Hannah Tobias and Vira Byramji, with mixing and mastering by Rachel Alina.
