Since 2005, ABC Daytime stars have gathered on stage to raise money for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. This year was the final year of "ABC Daytime Salutes Broadway Cares," which has raised over $1.6 million for the foundation and cast members from "One Life to Live," "All My Children," and "General Hospital" took part in a musical review at the "Town Hall" Theater in New York City on Broadway on Sunday night.

The two and a half hour show featured songs from several Broadway shows and even a skit that allowed an auction winner to act with her favorite daytime stars on stage.

Natalie Hall, who plays Colby Chandler on "All My Children," and Brandon Barash, who plays Johnny Zacchara on "General Hospital," performed a rendition of "Suddenly Seymour" from "Little Shop of Horrors" that included several references to the shows that they are on.

"It's a beautiful cause," Hall told WABC Television, the sister station of KABC, OnTheRedCarpet.com's parent company.

Barash added, "It's always important to raise awareness no matter what the cause is but especially for this because we've made progress with the disease and with education but there's so much more that needs to be done."

Hall, who is dating Barash, says performing with her boyfriend "was a lot of fun." She adds, "We don't get to work together because we're on different soaps. So it was really exciting."

"All My Children" star Susan Lucci made a surprise appearance and said, "Broadway cares is a really important and powerful presence on the planet and I'm really proud to be apart of it."
