Valisia LeKae had a 2013 full of dazzling highs and devastating lows—she was nominated for a Tony Award for her performance in Motown the Musical, and only months later, she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. As the actress strives to be cancer-free in 2014, the whole Broadway community is cheering her on, especially her friends at Motown. Ensemble member Julius Thomas III and associate conductor Jason Michael Webb teamed up with the Motown cast to write and perform a beautiful new song, “I Am Here,” just for the brave Broadway star. "Their love and encouragement is one of the things getting me through this," LeKae told Broadway.com in an exclusive interview. "I cannot tell you how amazing they are. Everyone has really stepped up for me.” Grab a box of tissues before watching the cast of Motown's tribute below. We'll be playing this song on repeat and sending lots of love to LeKae!
