NEW YORK - June 20, 2016 - Broadway's top musical artists are set to appear on NBC's Tuesday, June 21 telecast of "Maya & Marty" to perform "What the World Needs Now Is Love," an updated version of the classic Burt Bacharach/Hal David song that is helping to support the devastated LGBT community of Orlando, Fla.
