Casey Abrams, in New York City on a post-Idol boot media tour, surprised guests of the Sarcoma Foundation of America 10th Anniversary Gala with an impromptu performance at Cipriani’s in NYC on Monday night. He performed two songs: “Cry Me A River” by Ella Fitzgerald and “Heard it through the Grapevine” by Marvin Gaye.
Season 4’s Anthony Fedorov, whose brother Denis passed away from the disease, became a national spokesperson for the Sarcoma Foundation of America and was appointed to the SFA Board of Directors. He has been performing at the SFA Annual Gala every year since 2007. The SFA raised over $1 Million at this year’s gala, which will help fund Sarcoma (rare cancer) research grants in hopes of “finding a cure in our time.”
Check out some photos–including one with Casey and singer/songwriter Rufus Wainwright (his mother, folksinger Kate McGarrigle, died of the disease in 2010).
