We never get tired of seeing a bunch of divas singing their hearts out for a good cause! Tony winner LaChanze (who is readying to return to Broadway in If/Then), Tony winner Alice Ripley, Julia Murney, Tony nominee Kerry Butler and Tony nominee Vanessa Williams will perform in Living for Today, the sixth annual benefit for Gilana's Fund. The concert, which provides funding for educational programming promoting acceptance and understanding of our communities, each other and ourselves, will take place on January 19 at Joe's Pub.
The event will also feature The Skivvies (Lauren Molina and Nick Cearley), DeQuina Moore, Eric Anderson (who is set to appear in the upcoming Rocky), Tituss Burgess, Tony Yazbeck, Hannah Elless, Autumn Hulbert along with more special guests to help defy the frozen weather outside!
Past performers who have offered their talents to Living for Today include Emmy winner Candice Bergen, Tony winner Stephen Spinella, Tony nominee Kerry Butler, Paige Davis, Kate Shindle, Jim Walton, Aaron Lazar, Max Von Essen and Stephanie D'Abruzzo.
