Marti Gould Cummings will release his first recording, A Very Marti Holiday, November 1 on iTunes.
Produced by Blake Allen, the album features holiday recordings by Cummings, Tony Award winner Cady Huffman, Tony nominee Daphne Rubin-Vega, Olivier Award winner Lesli Margherita, Lion King star Jelani Remy, Kristina Nicole Miller, and Dear Evan Hansen's Tim Young.
A portion of the proceeds will be donated to The Ali Forney Center, the largest agency dedicated to LGBTQ homeless youth in the country.
“It has been important for me to use my social profile to create change,” said Cummings in a statement. “From raising issues on the political front this past year to standing up for the rights of the LGBTQ community, this record is being released to further a cause that is dear to my heart. The Ali Forney Center assists nearly 1,400 homeless LGBTQ kids every year. It’s proof that acceptance and guidance can make a huge difference in the life of a child or teen who is openly exploring their identity.”
