After Live 'Idol' Performance, Sales of Adam Lambert's Acoustic 'Aftermath' To Benefit Trevor Project

Says the Season 8 runner-up: "['Aftermath']...is about facing adversity and taking risks in the name of personal liberation. I hope this song inspires people to be who they truly want to be... And dance!"

To the relief of SoCal Glamberts who scored a seat to Thursday's elimination show, Adam Lambert's return to the American Idol stage on March 10 -- an annual tradition since he finished second on Season 8 -- will be a live acoustic performance of "Aftermath" and not pre-taped.

Immediately following Thursday's show (airing on Fox at 8:00pm), the Billboard remix will be made available on Lambert's official site with part of the proceeds going to support The Trevor Project. 

The Trevor Project is a leading organization focused on crisis intervention and suicide prevention among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth.    Says Lambert;"[“Aftermath”]...was written about finding the courage to be honest with yourself and the people who love you. It's about facing adversity and taking risks in the name of personal liberation. The song takes on different meanings to different listeners. I hope this song inspires people to be who they truly want to be... And dance!"   Look for “Aftermath” on Lambert's forthcoming Glam Nation Live CD/DVD (out on March 22nd) which was shot in Indianapolis, Indiana at Clowes Hall on August 31st, 2010 and directed by Doug Spangenberg. Fans can pre-order Glam Nation Live as well as an exclusive "Glam Nation Tour Pack" at AdamOfficial.com.   Lambert's debut album For Your Entertainment has sold over 1 million copies worldwide.
