Adam Lambert signs up for LGBT holiday concert

Vocal sensation Adam Lambert has been added to the bill for Cyndi Lauper's second annual holiday concert in New York City.

The 'Girls Just Want To Have Fun' icon has enlisted the help of some popular musicians and stars for her upcoming Cyndi Lauper & Friends: Home for the Holidays event, which will benefit homeless lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youths.

The event, which will take place on December 8 at the Beacon Theatre in Manhattan, will also feature appearances from Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie O’Donnell and Alexis Krauss of Sleigh Bells.

Speaking about the concert, Lauper explained that it's important to support the LGBT community and she's excited about this year's line-up: "When I first learned that up to 40 percent of all homeless youth in this country identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender I was shocked and saddened."

"For far too long homeless youth have not received the attention, resources and funding necessary to bring an end to this epidemic. My hope is that through this inspiring evening of music and comedy we can raise awareness and much needed funds to help these young people through our newly launched Forty to None Project.”

Meanwhile, Lambert recently made headlines after his cameo in 'Pretty Little Liars' and TV By The Numbers reports that it was "Tuesday’s #1 “Most Social” program and scored a 31% share of all TV-related social media activity."
