Both artists will appear and perform alongside an impressive bill that also includes the likes of Brittany Howard, Cher, Dolly Parton, Kim Petras, King Princess and Adam Lambert for the virtual edition of Lauper’s benefit show.
Hosted by Lauper herself, the show will take place via her TikTok page this Friday (11 December) from 8pm EST / 1am GMT, with additional streams scheduled across her YouTube and Facebook pages on Sunday (13 December) from 8pm EST / 1am GMT.
All proceeds will go to True Colors United, an organisation Lauper co-founded 12 years ago to battle homelessness among LGBTQ youth.

“It’s been a crazy year, but I am grateful for so many things – my immensely talented and generous friends who keep showing up for us year after year; the technology that is going to make it possible to bring our virtual concert to more people than ever; and all of our partners who help True Colors United do the work that we do,” Lauper said in a statement.
“The Home for the Holidays concert is 10 years and over 100 artists in, and has raised over three million dollars, which is beyond what I could have imagined when we began.
“Most importantly though, we are truly helping LGBTQ young people experiencing homelessness. And to all of the fans who watch, donate, and celebrate with us, you are family. And I thank you.”
Speaking to Australian broadcaster triple j in promotion of their annual public-voted countdown, The Hottest 100, Eilish shared a list of nine songs from the past year that she loved.
