Jared Grimes celebrates July 4th in Madrid

Jared Grimes, a 2001 Donna Reed Foundation scholarship recipient in dance, joined fellow Broadway stars in Spain to celebrate July 4th a bit early with over 3,000 ex-pats and Spaniards. The U.S. State Department invited Grimes (Radio City's NEW YORK SPRING SPECTACULAR), Tony Award-winner Laura Benanti (GYPSY), and Norm Lewis (PHANTOM, PORGY AND BESS), for an evening "Celebrating New York City".

The trio performed a medley of songs for the one-night-only concert at the invitation of U.S. Ambassador to Spain James Costos. Performances included classic show tunes from "Broadway Baby" to "Being Alive" and a showstopping re-visioning of MY FAIR LADY's "I Could Have Danced All Night", sung a cappella by Benanti with tap-dancing percussion from Grimes.
