4 Non Blondes, With Special Guest Evan Rachel Wood, Reunite at 2014 AN EVENING WITH WOMEN Event Tonight
The L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center previously announced that '90s female rock group 4 Non Blondes will reunite for a one-time, special performance at the 2014 "An Evening with Women" (AEWW) event produced by Grammy Award-winner Linda Perry on Saturday, May 10th at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Actress and singer Evan Rachel Wood will join the stage as a special guest performer and comedian Margaret Cho will host the annual event, which is always attended by some of the most influential women in music and entertainment.
"To give is one of the greatest gifts one could ever receive. 'An Evening with Women' is all of us giving heart, passion, time and self. I want to be of service and what better way than to create an evening raising awareness by celebrating life, music and community," said Linda Perry. "The L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center has done so much for so many. It's important to me that they continue helping people, and they need all the support they can get."
"An Evening with Women" raises funds for the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center's vital services for women and girls. Co-hosted & produced by Linda Perry & Brent Bolthouse, the event celebrates the life-saving programs of the Center through the powerful medium of music. Since Perry first began producing AEWW, the event has raised more than $4.1 million. Past performers at "An Evening with Women" have included Christina Aguilera, Pink, Cyndi Lauper, Heart, Cat Power, Courtney Love, Juliette Lewis, Ozzy Osbourne and Sia.
Since 1969 the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center has cared for, championed and celebrated LGBT individuals and families in Los Angeles and beyond. Today our health center, shelters, performance stages and classrooms serve more LGBT people than any other organization in the world. We are an unstoppable force in our community's fight against bigotry and the struggle to build a better world-a world in which LGBT people can be healthy, equal and complete members of society.

Born from the angst of living in a city rich with activism, music and on the forefront of the gay sexual revolution, 4 Non Blondes was formed in San Francisco in 1989. The band formed a musical bridge from an urban underground to music lovers of all genders, races and sexual orientations. They were signed by Interscope records and their musical strength and honesty broke through and crossed over to the masses with their 1992 debut release, Bigger, Better, Faster, More. Their 1993 anthemic hit "Whats Up" and the smash video on heavy rotation at MTV helped propel sales of the album to over six million copies worldwide. 4 Non Blondes disbanded in late 1994.
