    has received universal appeal

    I think "has received universal appeal" sounds weird. Doesn't it have to be "has had(shown) universal appeal"?

    3)The show won Drama Desk Awards in Outstanding Set Design of a Musical and Outstanding Actor in a Musical. The show’s main song, “This Is the Moment,” has received universal appeal and recognition, having been performed at the Olympics. The show includes many other famous songs like “A New Life,” “Someone Like You,” and “Take Me as I Am.”

    Re: has received universal appeal
