Celebrate the holiday with Cyndi Lauper and friends, for a good cause…
Cyndi Lauper has revealed the all-star lineup for her upcoming “Home for the Holidays” benefit concert. The 10th annual concert is going virtual this year and will livestream on Friday, December 11 at 8pm ET on TikTok. The concert will stream again on Lauper’s YouTube channel and Facebook page on Sunday, December 13 at 8pm ET. Lauper is set to pop on to chat with fans during both streams.
The impressive lineup includes musical and non-musical appearances by Cher, Dolly Parton, Billy Porter, Taylor Swift, Kim Petras, Adam Lambert, Bette Midler, Boy George, Billie Eilish, Taylor Swift, Whoopi Goldberg, Phoebe Bridgers, King Princess, Amanda Shires & Jason Isbell, Brandi Carlile, Sharon Osbourne and many, many more.
This year’s virtual edition of “Home for the Holidays” virtual concert is free. Donation stickers will pop up on the TikTok, Facebook and YouTube streams; viewers can also donate via text (by texting TrueColors to 24365) or at the org’s website. 100% of the donations will go to True Colors United, co-founded by Lauper, which works to prevent and end homelessness among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning youth.
“It’s been a crazy year, but I am grateful for so many things – my immensely talented and generous friends who keep showing up for us year after year; the technology that is going to make it possible to bring our virtual concert to more people than ever; and all of our partners who help True Colors United do the work that we do,” Lauper said in a statement.
“The ‘Home for the Holidays’ concert is 10 years and over 100 artists in, and has raised over three million dollars, which is beyond what I could have imagined when we began. Most importantly though, we are truly helping LGBTQ young people experiencing homelessness. And to all of the fans who watch, donate, and celebrate with us, you are family. And I thank you.”
