On February 20th, Cate Blanchett joined a concert at Stonewall in support of the Newtown Action Alliance, a “grassroots organization founded by Newtown residents after the tragic December 14, 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting” with the aim of ending gun violence.
First, Cate appeared alongside Margeaux Powell (hair and makeup artist/DisarmHate founder Jason Hayes) for a performance of Adele’s “Hello.” Here’s the video:
