The Benefit evening provided funds for two charities that support singers. Michael Feinstein’s Great American Songbook Initiative that brings the music of the Great American Songbook to young people today, to preserve it for future generations by creating vocal competitions nationwide, winners attending the Songbook Vocal Academy and given an opportunity to not only receive scholarship funds to continue their studies, but also appear with Michael on one of his shows. The Mabel Mercer Foundation serves to both perpetuate the memory and spirit of its legendary namesake, Donald F. Smith, and to stimulate and promote public interest in the fragile and endangered world of cabaret.
