With 40 percent of America's homeless youth reportedly identifying as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT), homelessness is one of the leading issues affecting young people in the LGBT community.
Now, the band Fancy Reagan and singer Kelly King have released a cover of the track "Say Something," originally a hit for A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera, the proceeds of which will be donated to the The Ali Forney Center. The Ali Forney Center is an amazing organization that provides homeless "youth with the support and nourishment they need to succeed and thrive" in NYC.
The song is available for purchase on Itunes.
