Our Simple Christmas Wish! Perez Gets His Beyonce On For Charity!


Surprise!

An early Christmas present, from us to you!

CLICK HERE to watch a charity music video - yes, Perez singing - that we made for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS!

It's a song that you may not be familiar with, but we are pretty sure it will be an instant fave! It is so brilliant and FUNNY! My Simple Christmas Wish (Rich, Famous & Powerful) by the very talented David Friedman!

The song was recorded for Carols For A Cure, an annual compilation featuring the companies of all the current musicals on Broadway. And Perez!!

Every dollar raised from the sales of the album goes directly to BCEFA and supporting their work! They raise A LOT of money and give back to many causes.

BCEFA awards annual grants to more than 450 AIDS and family service organizations nationwide and is the major supporter of the social service programs at The Actors Fund, including the HIV/AIDS Initiative, the Phyllis Newman Women's Health Initiative, the Al Hirschfeld Free Health Clinic, The Dancers' Resource and the Stage Managers' Project.

We'd like to thank Lynn Pinto for kindly asking Perez to record a song for Carols For A Cure.

Thanks also to our voice coach, Liz Caplan, the best in the biz, for suggesting the tune.

Thank you to David Friedman for letting us do it!

A HUGE THANK YOU to Andrew Keenan-Bolger for directing and producing the music video!

And thank you to the dancers and everyone else involved who donated their time!

If you like the song, CLICK HERE to buy your copy of Carols For A Cure 2014 edition - also featuring Sting! All the money goes to a really great cause, near and dear to our heart!

Thanks for watching!

And happy holidays!!!!

Love, Perez

Tis the season!!!

2013 has been so uber-exciting for us! There's so much to celebrate and be thankful for!

With the holiday season thisclose to being here, we were thrilled to hear that once again, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS (BC/EFA), one of the nation’s leading industry-based, nonprofit AIDS fundraising and grant-making organizations, would be putting together their annual Broadway’s Carols for a Cure holiday album.

And what's more, guess which celebrity gossip blogger and Broadway fan they asked BACK to sing on the record? Duh, who else? PEREZ!!!

Not only that, but for the 15th volume of the wonderful series, an original song was written just for us! It's called Perez’s 2013 Holiday Dishlist and it was produced by Lynn Pinto, with Andros Rodriguez as the recording & mix engineer, Jason Michael Webb as the arranger & music director, and George Howe helping with lyrics.

OMG you guys — just WAIT till you hear it! It's going to mix all the magic of the season with all the juicy celebrity dirt from the past year!

And it case you missed it, CLICK HERE to listen to our X-Mas song from last year, A Perez Hilton Christmas!

Broadway Backwards 7 Breaks The Gender Rules And Raises $320K For Charity!

That's how you do it, Broadway babies!

The seventh Broadway Backwards event took place Monday and some of Broadway's heaviest hitters performed during the gender-bending musical night.

The event featured same sex pairings in normally heterosexual duets, leaving the words and lyrics mostly unchanged. The event raises LGBT awareness as well as gives the gay community a chance to see their life stories played out on stages.

Plus, who doesn't want to see King of Siam and Anna as men?!

Broadway babe Telly Leung summed up the night beautifully:

The whole concert is about looking at things in a different way and re-examining preconceptions of not only theatre music, but [also] preconceptions of 'alternative lifestyles.' Hopefully people walk away from the theatre and do that in their lives the way we re-examine the songs—re-examine our lives and how we see the world.

Other Broadway superstars that performed include Robin de Jesús, Betty Buckley and Andrew Rannells. The event raised $320K for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, capping off a FABulous night!

Check out the video above to see how performers prepared for the a-mazing event!
