A pop singer best known for her 2007 hit “Love Song” will be the musical guest for an upcoming Democratic National Committee fundraiser in New York City.

Sara Bareilles is scheduled to perform at the DNC LGBT Annual Gala, which this year is set for May 29 at 5 p.m. at an event space in New York’s Upper East Side.

She headlines the fundraiser following release of her new single “Brave,” which she wrote for a gay friend struggling with coming out.

As previously reported, Jason Collins, an NBA player who recently came out as gay, is also headlining the event.

First lady Michelle Obama and gay television personality Andy Cohen will also make an appearance. President Obama isn’t scheduled to attend.

According to The Huffington Post, tickets start at $1,250 per person and go up to $32,400 per couple to chair the event.
