Song Benefits Homeless LGBT Youth

Openly gay singers - including Alan Cumming - remake an old favorite

David Raleigh, Alan Cumming and Ari Gold recently recorded a remake of Dionne Warwick’s “That’s What Friends Are For” to benefit the Ali Forney Center, a New York City shelter for homeless LGBT youth. The song was originally written as a tribute to people living with AIDS in the 1980s – and performed by Warwick, Elton John, Stevie Wonder and Gladys Knight. But as part of the Friends Project, proceeds from the new iTunes download help fund the center’s mission to reach out to gay, lesbian and transgender youth who are at risk living on the streets.
