"They don't want to hear the standard Broadway fare like they used to. After Rent and Tommy, there have been a lot more musicals centering their musical style around rock operas like Jesus Christ Superstar."

Jason Raize at This Is Your Song
On April 3, 2000, Jason appeared in This Is Your Song: Broadway Sings Elton John, a benefit concert for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and the Elton John AIDS Foundation. Hosted by Nathan Lane and Christine Baranski, the event took place at the New Amsterdam Theatre.

Jason sang a stirring rendition of "Levon" from 1971's Madman Across the Water. Other performers at the event included Sandra Bernhard, Betty Buckley, Mario Cantone, Lea DeLaria, Ann Duquesnay, Linda Eder, Victor Garber, Deborah Gibson, Sam Harris, Heather Headley, Jennifer Holliday, Jeremy Kushnier, Andrea McArdle, Orfeh, Adam Pascal, and Sherie René Scott. John also performed a few numbers including "Circle of Life" and an entertaining "Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend."

This Is Your Song raised $436,000 for the two charities. A DVD of the event is available through Broadway Beat, with all proceeds benefiting Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. To purchase a copy, visit BroadwayBeat.com and follow the link to the Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS Order Form.
