NY Fashion Week and Music Artists Unite for Stand Up 2 Cancer

I’m channel surfing as I settle in for a lonely, quiet night.  Lo and behold, I stumbled upon this Fashion Rocks concert.  What an unexpected musical bonus for the night!

Apparently, this is the 5th year, but it’s the first time I’ve ever seen or heard of it.  It was a way to kick off fashion week in NYC.

Pause, for my personal plug…

Whoever gives a damn and can make it happen…it would be an Ifelicious dream come true to attend NY’s Fashion Week before I grow old and frail (although, i’ll even go old and frail with my tricked out wheelchair, polyester, and pampers…what!!  lol).

It’s on my life list, and I would be eternally grateful.

Ok, back to my post…

Proceeds go to standup2cancer.org, “a program established by the Entertainment Industry Foundation to raise money for cancer research.” (source: Associated Press)

I just saw Solange Knowles perform and one of those kumbaya songs I think I’ve heard somewhere before.  Oh wait, it’s called “Just Stand Up.”

Show’s over.  Anybody see it?  What did you like or not like?

So, I’m not doing this cause justice with this bits and pieces post, so I’ll just point you to some things so you can get smart.
