Seth Rudetsky's Voices for the Voiceless Raises Big Bucks; Evening Featured Bombshell Tune

News   Seth Rudetsky's Voices for the Voiceless Raises Big Bucks; Evening Featured Bombshell Tune Voices for the Voiceless: Stars For Foster Kids, a one-night-only concert event that was held June 29 at Broadway's St. James Theatre to help older foster kids find permanent adoptive families, raised more than $500,000.

Hosted by Seth Rudetsky and James Wesley, the star-studded evening included special performances of “A Song for You” by Tituss Burgess, “Defying Gravity” by Eden Espinosa, “Stronger” by Rachel Crow and “Do Re Mi” from Megan Hilty. Composer-lyricist Marc Shaiman joined Hilty onstage for a performance of “Second Hand White Baby Grand” from Bombshell.

Tina Fey and Jane Krakowski also took to the stage for a Rudetsky signature deconstruction of "Don’t Cry Out Loud." Krakowski sang each lyric as Fey followed with her interpretation of the meaning.

A live auction – hosted by Caroline Rhea – to have a personal performance from Darren Criss on stage at the event caused a bidding war that eventually brought in a total of $30,000 (Criss agreed to sing for each of the winners).

Additional performers and supporters for the evening included Lisa Lampanelli, Lilla Crawford, Debra Monk, Andrea Martin, Santino Fontana, Tony Yazbeck, Rachel York, Ruthie Ann Miles, Jennifer Simard, Jose Llana, Christine Pedi, Barrett Foa, Kate Shindle, Howard McGillin, Janice Huff, Rachel Crow, Antwone Fisher, Charlene Tilton, Tony Shellman and Alec Mapa.
