Seasons of Love
RENT 20th Anniversary Cast
Seasons of Love

This is the 20th anniversary cast of RENT singing Seasons of Love. Listen to this, if only for the soloists. The male soloist BROUGHT THE HOUSE DOWN, GUYS.

During this song, Angel smiled and nodded at me because I was crying and clapping along. I was in the pit, FRONT ROW. Yes, only a few feet away from the cast.

Amazing, amazing, amazing.
