A collection of inspiring songs about love and courage
with Jon Arterton and James Mack,
legally married in Massachusetts in 2005 – and the sky didn’t fall!
“Legally Married … and the sky didn’t fall!” contains fourteen wonderful songs, three of which were written by David Friedman: “We Live on Borrowed Time”, “Help is on the Way” and “We Can Be Kind;” and two by Stephen Sondheim: “Children Will Listen” and “Being Alive.” Other songs include “They Were You” from The Fantasticks, “Come What May” from the film Moulin Rouge, “We Shall Be Free” by Garth Brooks, “Secret o’ Life” by James Taylor, “Change of Heart” by Holly Near”, “Defenders of Marriage” by Roy Zimmerman, “Everything Possible” by Fred Small, “On My Way to You” by Michel Legrand, and “Love Don’t Need a Reason” by Michael Callen and Peter Allen.
Jon Arterton was once a high school
teacher and the co-founder of the proudly
gay a cappella group The Flirtations seen on
HBO and in the film Philadelphia. He now
conducts The Outer Cape Chorale,
Provincetown’s 140-voice community chorus.
James Mack was once a licensed
Southern Baptist minister and later a men’s
fashion executive in New York City. For many
years he owned a bed-and-breakfast in
Provincetown, and now performs wedding
ceremonies for couples gay and straight.
