MGM Resorts International, the parent company of Borgata, has released a collection of reimagined wedding songs for the LGBTQ community, celebrating the enduring and overwhelming power of love and music to unite. The digital album, called UNIVERSAL LOVE, can be streamed on Spotify, Pandora, iTunes and Apple Music.
UNIVERSAL LOVE offers six newly recorded versions of iconic love songs that give same-sex couples a soundtrack for their own love stories and feature pronouns changed to reflect the world of LGBTQ relationships. Bob Dylan, one of the most influential and successful recording artists in American history, is among the visionary artists participating in this unprecedented project. Dylan re-recorded “She’s Funny That Way” as “He’s Funny That Way.” The album features five additional stellar artists whose involvement is a testament to the urgency of equality in entertainment: Kesha (“I Need a Woman to Love Me”), St. Vincent (“And Then She Kissed Me”), Benjamin Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie (“And I Love Him”), Kele Okereke of Bloc Party (“My Guy”), and Valerie June (“Mad About The Girl”).
MGM Resorts and Borgata have a deep-seated belief that entertainment is fundamental to human fulfillment. The company’s passion for the UNIVERSAL LOVE project reflects its profound commitment to embracing humanity and the impact music can have on the human experience. Borgata’s OUT at Borgata program proudly supports diversity and embraces the LGBTQ community: our Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender travel enthusiasts, team members, and friends. As a result of receiving a perfect score of 100 percent on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2016, 2017 & 2018 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), Borgata is now recognized as one of the “Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality,” joining just 407 major U.S. businesses which also earned top marks this year. Furthermore, Borgata is thrilled to partner with the Greater Atlantic City GLBT Alliance, Independence Business Alliance, and the International Gay & Lesbian Travel Association.
