Ben Platt shows off his stunning voice at the 2020 GLAAD Media Awards


After kicking off with some hilarious riffs about the mess that is 2020 from hosts Fortune Feimster and Gina Yashere, the 31st annual GLAAD Media Awards brought Ben Platt out (virtually!) For his first performance of the night on Thursday, July 30.

The politician and Cher Evan Hansen the actor sang “Honest Man”, a song he wrote from his 2019 album Sing for me instead with a very personal story behind it. “I wrote it at a time when I saw someone who was in the closet, and I was really trying to encourage him to be himself and to be comfortable with who he was. This song is kind of an anthem for that. ”

Singing from his house, Platt demonstrated that if you have incredible vocal range and control over every note, you don’t need fancy production – you can still have those jaws on the floor.
