It may be a bit of an unlikely roster, but 50 Cent, Sufjan Stevens, STRFKR, Salt-N-Pepa, Emily West, Liv Warfield and Dixie Chicks’ Natalie Maines are billed as the acts scheduled to perform at Cyndi Lauper & Friends: Home for the Holidays.
Home for the Holidays is an annual benefit concert that’s meant to help raise awareness for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth homelessness. All proceeds for the event, which is set to feature co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Laverne Cox, are slated to benefit Lauper’s True Colors Fund.
Lauper released a statement explaining her excitement about the upcoming event:
“I am astounded by the artists who continue to give of their time and talent each and every year and I am so excited by the line-up who are joining us in December.”
“The concert plays such an important role in supporting the True Colors Fund’s work to ensure that no young person is homeless again because of their sexual orientation or gender identity,” Lauper added, according to Rolling Stone.
Cyndi Lauper & Friends: Home for the Holidays is scheduled to take place December 6 at New York’s Beacon Theatre. Tickets for the event are set to go on sale October 24 through Ticketmaster.
