Behind The Scenes

Ben Vereen on CBS Sunday Morning

Tony Award winner (Pippin) and all around incredible spirit, Ben Vereen, has lived an incredible life so far and sat down with Mo Rocca on CBS Sunday Morning this past weekend to talk about it. What is incredible about Mr. Vereen is his truly supernatural strength rooted deeply in joy; joy for life, joy for art, and joy in what the next chapter will bring.

The triumphs of Ben Vereen on the stage and screen are well known, he is a consummate entertainer who has been thrilling audiences for decades. However, less known are his personal struggles from the loss of his daughter to the near loss of his life- it is the overcoming of these obstacles that are highlighted in this most recent interview. Through it all, we see a man filled with passion and a soul that has been through more than most can imagine, but still has a fire that nothing can destroy.

Watch the full CBS Sunday Morning interview with the spiritual enforcer, Ben Vereen below.
