From Dust to Dreams: Opening Night at the Smith Center for the Performing Arts documents a March gala celebrating the debut of the new Las Vegas facility.
The two-hour show features performances by stars from various genres, including Train frontman Pat Monahan, R&B singer Jennifer Hudson, and country stars Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Martina McBride and Emmylou Harris.
King is featured teaming up with some of her co-stars for collaborative renditions of her classic tunes. She joins forces with McBride and Hudson on a version of "Natural Woman," and with Staples for a performance of "You've Got a Friend."
TV star Neil Patrick Harris serves as host for the event.
