Sleigh Bells and St Vincent join Cyndi Lauper for ‘Girls Just Want To Have Fun’ – watch

Unlikely group collaborate for New York fundraiser

St Vincent and Sleigh Bells singer Alexis Krauss joined pop star Cyndi Lauper on stage for a duet of her 1980s hit ‘Girls Just Want To Have Fun’ in New York on Saturday night (December 8).

The live collaboration, which can be seen below, came as part of the ‘Cyndi Lauper and Friends: Home for the Holidays’ concert held at the Beacon Theatre. Other guests appearing on the night included Sarah McLachlan, Jason Mraz, Whoopi Goldberg, Roberta Flack and Carson Kressley as well as Adam Duritz and David Immerglück of the Counting Crows. Comedian Rosie O’Donnell played drums for the live version of ‘Girls Just Want To Have Fun’.

Meanwhile, American Idol winner Adam Lambert performed a cover of ‘Mad World’ with Lauper. The New York concert was held to raise money for Lauper’s charity organisation the True Colours Fund, which was established in 2008 and seeks to raise money for young people through its Forty to None project. All money made from the concert will be donated to help homeless LGBT youths.
