What started as a single YouTube video aimed at giving hope and courage to bullied LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) teens has turned into a worldwide phenomenon with rally cries echoing the catchphrase "It gets better." Thousands of videos have flooded the internet from everyday people and celebrities like Stephen Colbert, Jane Lynch, Ellen DeGeneres, Margaret Cho, Tim Gunn, Kathy Griffin, Sarah Silverman, and even President Obama. Now the initiative takes to the stage in a nationwide tour, with music from the Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles -- offering song and story as inspiration for LGBT youth and all those who suffer discrimination.

Houston first met Chinese piano phenomenon Yuja Wang in March 2008 when she stepped in at the last minute as the soloist for the Academy of St Martin in the Fields. She was a favorite of conductor Sir Neville Marriner, and she immediately became one of Houston’s, too!
Three years later, Ms. Wang is back as a recitalist. She has become widely recognized for piano playing that combines the spontaneity and fearless imagination of youth with the discipline and precision of a mature artist. Regularly lauded for her controlled, prodigious technique, Wang’s command of the piano has been described as “astounding” and “superhuman.” The Washington Post called Yuja’s Kennedy Center recital debut “jaw-dropping.”
