ACT TWO


BROKEN (LINCOLN, ALEX)

Act two starts with Lincoln, sitting in the moonlit field, singing of the broken trust between him and his father. He is joined by Alex who finds him and lends his support. This recording is a reworking from the original, so I begin singing Lincoln’s part until we catch up to what was salvaged from the original song which included a now-deleted character. Here is Leland Parker McGuire and Ethan Mathias in duet mode.
