TSU's "It Gets Better" Song, Penned By Broadway's Andrew Lippa, Now on iTunes
Musical theater fans wanting to listen to Andrew Lippa's song "It Gets Better" no longer need to keep pressing "play" on Youtube to hear the song over and over again. With "It Gets Better" now available on iTunes, listeners can just hit "repeat."
Lippa, the Tony-nominated composer of The Addams Family, wrote and recorded the song with students in Texas State University's musical theater program as part of the It Gets Better Project, an anti-bullying campaign that supports LGBT youth.
Since the video recording of the song showed up on Youtube last month, it has received more than 11,000 views. It was made available on iTunes "due to numerous requests," according to a release.
Lippa was recently commissioned to create a new work to be developed and premiered at TSU.
