Jonathan Larsson's "RENT" has been acclaimed worldwide for it's portrayal of young peoples lives in a large metropolis on the brink of the new millenium. Apart from that, the show's a mindblowing experience with wonderful songs and lyrics. We included a medley from "RENT" in "Broadway Baby!" which we did in the fall of 2001, and I was so fortunate that I got to sing the most bitter-sweet ballade I know: "I'll Cover You".
Tom Collins, an HIV-positive engineer, has just seen his lover Angel die from the same disease, and sings him the song they proclaimed to each other when they met. Heartbroken he proclaims to Angel and the world that he'll cover him, as their friends try to support him.
