Brittany Howard, Shamir, Spoon, Tierra Whack and more will play The Ally Coalition’s 7th Annual Talent Show to support homeless LGBTQ youth shelters
On December 21st, The Ally Coalition will be hosting their 7th annual Talent Show to benefit homeless LGBTQ youth shelters. The show will feature performances by Big Red Machine, Bleachers, Alabama Shakes’ Brittany Howard, Shamir, St. Vincent, Tierra Whack and more.
The Ally Coalition works within the music industry with bands, brands and fans to support LGBTQ youth and was founded by Bleachers frontperson and celebrated producer Jack Antonoff along with his former FUN bandmates. Antonoff spoke about the annual Talent Show in an Instagram post:
“The pandemic has been hard on everyone but the communities that we are supporting here have been hit disproportionately harder. so …. we will see you all in 6 days and raise money for local LGBTQ homeless shelters. To anyone who has been in the past- you know how special this night is. Obviously we can’t meet in person this year … so … here we go – we’re online and we’re putting something together that will be as special and loose as we do it. Thank you to all the friends who are performing here. Going to be a very special night that has already raised 250k for homeless LGBTQ youth shelters. See you monday! spread the word- free to watch on @twitch with a donate option during the show”
All of the event’s proceeds from donations and exclusive merch will support community-based, nonprofit LGBTQ homeless youth shelters. You can RSVP here, and check out the full lineup below.
