American Idol Season 3 Winner, Fantasia Barrino, busted out onto the stage and quickly had the crowd on their feet during her four song set at The Trevor Project’s annual fundraising event, Cracked Xmas 11.
Starting with Rock Steady and going right into an amazing version of Chaka Khan’s, Tell Me Something Good, the crowd was captivated.
Fantasia went into the audience during her performance of Prince’s Purple Rain. Her final piece was a beautiful, You were always on my mind, a song recorded by Elvis, Willie Nelson, and the Pet Shop Boys.
Wanda Sykes kicked off the comedy portion of the show, followed shortly (pun intended) by Trevor favorite, Lesley Jordan.
Anne Hathaway got into the spirit of the night by offering to auction herself off. Although she started at $500.00 she quickly got the bid up to $12,000.00.
Anne presented the Trevor Life Award to Sigourney Weaver. Sigourney was very gracious and we look forward to her upcoming film, Prayers for Bobby. Lifetime Television was presented with the Trevor Hope Award. Also present were this year’s three Colin Higgins Foundation’s Youth Courage Awardees.
