Neil Goldberg, today announced that Broadway and recording artist Linda Eder, and multiple Grammy Award-winning entertainer Jon Secada, have joined Broward 100's already amazing, diversified and talented cast of "WE." This highly anticipated Broadway-style show will be the pinnacle of Broward's yearlong centennial celebration, Broward 100 - Celebrating the Art of Community. 

Secada and Eder are the first celebrity entertainers announced to perform in "WE" on Saturday, October 3 at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts in the Au-Rene Theater. They will be joined by other popular artists and performers still to be announced along with the hometown cast of "WE," comprised of hundreds of brilliantly talented South Florida musicians, dancers, poets, choirs, athletes and variety acts ranging in age from nine to 70+.

Known for his spectacular imagination as a theatrical impresario, Goldberg states, "Adding Linda and Jon to the "WE" production heightens this once-in-a-lifetime entertainment experience and performance. Audiences are sure to be entertained by memorable performances of every genre under the sun, all the while showcasing the best of Broward."

As a two-time Grammy Award-winning recording artist with mega hits such as "Just Another Day," Jon Secada is a dynamic, versatile, live performer and international superstar who tours and performs all across the globe. Jon first gained prominence in Gloria Estefan's Miami Sound Machine. He has performed with opera legend Luciano Pavarotti and recorded a duet with Frank Sinatra, "The Best Is Yet to Come" from Sinatra's Duets II album. He has also recorded duets with pianist Jim Brickman and Grammy winning icon, Olivia Newton-John.

Showcasing one of the greatest contemporary voices of our time, Linda Eder's diverse repertoire spans Broadway, standards, pop, country and jazz.  Starring in the original Broadway musical Jekyll & Hyde, Eder blew the roof off New York's Plymouth Theatre each night as she belted out signature songs "Someone Like You" and "A New Life".  Her Broadway debut, for which she received a Drama Desk nomination, sent her already rapidly rising star blazing across the sky, securing her spot as one of America's most beloved singers and dynamic live performers.

Goldberg, recently announced that after the performance of "WE" the audience will vote for their favorite local performer who will win a $10,000 cash prize sponsored by the Neil Goldberg Dream Foundation.  Additionally, the Foundation will award each of the five runners up with $1,000 cash prizes.
