NEW YORK June 16 AP - Dozens of Broadway stars horrified by the Orlando nightclub shooting will lend their voices to recording a version of the iconic 1965 song "What the World Needs Now is Love," with all proceeds going to help the LGBT Center of Central Florida.

The project is inspired by the 1985 "We Are the World" benefit for Africa. It will include Audra McDonald, Idina Menzel, Wayne Brady, Sara Bareilles, Kristen Bell, Gloria Estefan, Megan Hilty, Rosie O'Donnell, Sarah Jessica Parker, Sutton Foster, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Bernadette Peters and Whoopi Goldberg.

The digital download of the Burt Bacharach song will be sold for $US1.99 ($A2.69) and be available Monday at Broadway Records' website and on iTunes thereafter.
