Openly gay US singer Adam Lambert will donate a portion of the profits from the online sale of one of his songs to a gay teen suicide group.
Lambert, who is an American Idol season 8 runner-up and Grammy nominee, will return to the American Idol stage on Thursday to perform an acoustic version of his song Aftermath.
Immediately following the performance, a remix of Aftermath will be made available on AdamOfficial.com with part of the proceeds from its sale going to support The Trevor Project.
The Trevor Project is a leading US organisation focused on crisis intervention and suicide prevention among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth.
“[Aftermath]…was written about finding the courage to be honest with yourself and the people who love you. It’s about facing adversity and taking risks in the name of personal liberation,” said Lambert.
“The song takes on different meanings to different listeners. I hope this song inspires people to be who they truly want to be… And dance!”
Aftermath is included on Lambert’s debut album, For Your Entertainment, which has sold over 1 million copies worldwide since making its debut at number 3 on the Billboard Top 200 chart in November 2009.
