Beloved singer/songwriter Cyndi Lauper will host her tenth annual Home for the Holidays concert event coming up this weekend (as a live stream event), first on Friday, Dec. 11 on her TikTok page and then again on Sunday, Dec. 13 on YouTube and Facebook.

The star-studded musical event will feature a host of A-list special guest musicians and icons, joining Lauper in her fundraising efforts for True Colors United, the organization she co-founded 12 years ago to prevent and end homelessness among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth. 100 percent of fundraising efforts raised during the show will go directly to True Colors United.

The list of participating acts set to appear in the show includes:

Adam Lambert, Amanda Shires & Jason Isbell, Bette Midler, Billie Eilish, Billy Porter, Billy Steinberg, Boy George, Brandi Carlile, Brittany Howard, Carson Kressley, Cher, Dolly Parton, Harvey Fierstein, Henry Rollins, Jackson Browne, Judy Gold, Justin Tranter, Kim Petras, King Princess, Kinky Boots, LL Cool J, Meg Myers, Phoebe Bridgers, Sharon Osbourne, Shea Diamond, Taylor Swift, Tom Kelly, Tracy Young, Whoopi Goldberg, and Youth Pride Chorus.

Said Lauper about Home for the Holidays 2020, which will include her “popping in to chat with fans” during the streams:

“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. 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.” – Cyndi Lauper
