Home Uncategorized Exclusive: Rosie O’Donnell’s Theater Kids First-Ever Music Video

Rosie O’Donnell’s Theater Kids raised $850,000 last night with the help of Z100’s Elvis Duran, Fox5’s Rosanna Scotto, and the kids and instructors from Rosie’s amazing pet project, The Maravel Arts Center, on West 45th St. The kids–the sixth year of kids who’ve passed through Rosie’s incredible program–made their first music video ever recently, written and directed by Broadway and TV star B.D. Wong. The video is in our main page player at the bottom of the home page. Rosie’s Kids are a knock out as usual. The program has not only saved lives, but changed them. A great night at the Marriott Marquis, as usual. And Rosie’s Kids are still threading their way through the New York City school system. Bravo! Watch the video. PS The economy may be coming back. The MM Ballroom was very full, the fullest I’ve seen it in three years. Maravel is a marvel!
