With an all-star line lineup of voices, including Kristin Chenoweth, Harvey Fierstein, Jennifer Hudson, Ariana Grande, and more, it’s no surprise that this original soundtrack to the NBC Television Event Hairspray LIVE!, brought to us by Masterworks Broadway/Epic Records, hits a home run! Baltimore was buzzing this December with the toe-tapping, electric soundtrack that gifted fans with pure bliss that left us aching with a major case of nostalgia for this groundbreaking musical.
The winning formula of Hairspray includes a mix of classic upbeat tunes such as “Good Morning Baltimore” and “You Can’t Stop the Beat” that are guaranteed to get you up out of your seat and shamelessly dancing along, as well as soulful and R&B-inspired hits such as “Big, Blonde, and Beautiful,” “Welcome to the 60’s,” and “Run and Tell That” and doo-wop and rock-and-roll style love songs, including “It Takes Two” and “(You’re) Timeless to Me.” Even the most sour soul will believe in love again with these powerful ballads. These tunes do more than just entertain, but hit on important messages of diversity and inclusion that continue to remain relevant in our society.
While Harvey Fierstein and Jennifer Hudson absolutely slay, the real joy is in experiencing Maddie Baillio hit her high note with her much-anticipated professional debut. Her voice is lovely and reflects the innocence and hope that our world so desperately needs.
To sum it up in simple terms, this soundtrack will give you ALL THE FEELS!
