LIVING FOR TODAY was created in 2008 by Gilana's brother David, a director living in New York City. As a way to raise money for his sister's fund, David gathered some of his Broadway friends to come together in song in a concert setting. The first three sold-out years were held at the Laurie Beechman Theater in Midtown Manhattan, and for its fourth year, LFT moved downtown to the historic Joe's Pub. The fourth year welcomed a new component to the night, the announcement of the Fund's recipients, announced live on stage. Every year the concert ends with an arrangement of John Lennon's "Imagine," a song Gilana cherished, and one whose message is an important one: to live for today.
