NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) _ A benefit concert by Broadway stars that was put on for the Newtown community following the mass shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary school will be televised next month.

“From Broadway With Love: A Benefit Concert For Sandy Hook”, took place on January 28 at the Palace Theater in Waterbury, Connecticut.

It featured artists such as Tony Award winners Michael Cerveris, and Brian Stokes Mitchell along with children from Sandy Hook and other schools in town.
A recording of the concert will air on WLIW21 at 10 p.m. July 18 and later in the month on CPTV and NJTV.

The website for donations will be flashed on the screen and proceeds from DVD and CD sales of the recorded concert also will go to the Newtown-Sandy Hook Community Foundation.
