After another stellar performance as the "Guest Star" in Broadway's After Midnight, the crowd at the Brooks Atkinson Theater on Friday night were in for a treat. Dulé Hill introduced Tony Award-winning chairman of The Actors Fund, Brian Stokes Mitchell, who explained that the Actor's Fund received a call from a supporter pledging a $10,000 donation if they could arrange for k.d. lang to perform her iconic rendition of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" on the Broadway stage. k.d. agreed and took the stage for a special encore, performing the song to an immediate standing ovation.
