NIGHTLINE, SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, + REGIS & KELLY

Last night, Idina’s segment for ABC’s “Nightline” aired. Unfortunately, no one seemed to know it was coming, so I think most of us missed it! If anyone managed to capture it, please contact me so I can post the video here. You can also read Nightline’s written article about her on the ABC website right here!

EDIT Thanks to Sierra for finding the video on ABC’s website!

IDINA TO PERFORM AT TREVOR PROJECT BENEFIT

Sorry for the slow news this past week! I’ve been on vacation, but after a great concert in San Diego (by Ms. Menzel!) I’m back online. A ton of things have happened since our last update! I’ll break this up into a couple posts to avoid confusion.

On June 30th, Idina will be performing in NYC at the annual “Trevor Project” gala benefit. The Trevor Project is an organization that operates the nation’s only around-the-clock crisis and suicide prevention helpline for gay and questioning youth. For more information or to purchase tickets to this event, visit The Trevor Project’s website.

Note: This is a charity benefit, so tickets don’t come cheaply, but it’s sure to be a moving, emotional evening for a very good cause.
