She's such an inspiration!
Cyndi Lauper will be doing a star-studded True Colors holiday concert to benefit LGBT youth this December.
Celebs who will be making special appearances are Norah Jones, Amy Lee, Rosie O'Donnell, Wanda Sykes, Carson Kressley, Chely Wright, Skylar Grey, Vanessa Carlton, Angelique Kidjo, Harvey Fierstein, Deluka, Debbie Harry, Alan Cumming and Clay Aiken.
Cyndi was inspired to create the benefit concert after meeting with a group of young homeless gay and transgender teens in NYC several years ago. It's estimated that 30%-40% of all homeless youth identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender.
"When I first learned that up to 40 percent of all homeless youth in this country identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender I was shocked and saddened. For far too long homeless youth have not received the attention, resources and funding necessary to bring an end to this epidemic. My hope is that through this inspiring evening of music and comedy we can raise awareness and much needed funds to help these young people."
Cyndi is so wonderful to lend her talent to this extraordinary event.
Tickets go on sale to the general public on Oct. 28.
