Tonight In NYC: Surprise Vanessa Williams Concert Benefiting LIFEbeat

I’ve been tipped off that tonight’s Vanessa Williams “CD listening party” at Greenhouse will actually be a surprise live concert featuring Williams, her full band, and backup singers. Williams is promoting her new release, The Real Thing, and tonight’s event is a fundraiser for LIFEbeat, the music industry’s HIV/AIDS charity. Advance tickets are $20, $25 at the door (if available) and includes a two-hour open bar.
