Michael Longoria, whose album Broadway Brick By Brick was recently released, will perform a June 23 9 PM benefit concert for New Alternatives, the non-profit organization dedicated to helping homeless LGBT youth.
Joining Longoria for Songs for New Alternatives will be Ashley Austin Morris, Constantine Maroulis, Diana DeGarmo, Daniel Reichard, Marty Thomas, Christina Bianco, Tori Scott, Ryan Raftery, Willito Rivera, Mathieu Blue, Felicia Finley, Alexa Green, Ashanti J’aria, Danny Longoria, Tim Young, Jennifer Malenke, Michelle Dowdy, Cameron Mitchell Bell, Jennifer Bishop, Matthew Roscoe, Jenna Miller, Kristina Nicole Miller, Marissa Pontecorvo and Andrea Nardello.
Funds raised will support New Alternatives, which is facing a crisis after learning that the donated space they have been using for programming will no longer be available to them after August.
“I strongly identify with the need to feel at ‘home,’ which is deeply missed when you are young and LGBT, estranged from family, and feel that there is nowhere that you belong. We need to look out for the LGBT youth of our community, if we don’t, who will?,” Longoria said in a statement. Donations can be made directly to New Alternatives here.
There is a $10 suggested donation at the door. The concert will take place at Hardware Bar, located at 697 10th Avenue.
