It's Raining Unique: Alex Newell and Martha Wash

I got up early on Sunday morning and ventured out into the rain to catch the opening ceremony for the New York AIDS Walk 2013. I was rewarded for my effort with these fabulous performances by Alex Newell ("Unique" on the television show Glee), singing "I Know Where I've Been" and "You'll Never Walk Alone" by legendary vocalist Martha Wash. Newell definitely lives up to his "unique" billing and even gets a standing ovation from Miss "It's Raining Men" herself. And be sure to listen to Wash's absolutely beautiful solo rendition of "You'll Never Walk Alone" at the closing of the ceremony.
