Ally Coalition benefit concert, featuring Hayley Williams, LDR & more, raises $350K for homeless LGBTQ shelters

The Ally Coalition

The 2020 Ally Coalition Talent Show benefit concert raised $350,000 for homeless LGBTQ shelters.

The event, organized by the brother-sister team Jack and Rachel Antonoff, was held virtually Monday night due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Performances included Paramore‘s Hayley Williams covering “Tear Drop” by Massive Attack, Lana Del Rey singing “Silent Night,” and St. Vincent putting her spin on The Beatles‘ “Martha My Dear.”

“Thank you to everyone who performed and worked behind the scenes to make the 7th annual @allycoalition talent show such a beautiful night,” Jack tweeted following the end of the show. “We raised 350k for homeless lgbtq shelters because of you all. See you next year, maybe in person.”
