Officials at the VOICE Charter School in Long Island City will unveil the Lena Horne Campus in the New Year and mark the occasion by hosting a benefit gala at Manhattan's Symphony Space venue, where Broadway stars Audra MCDonald, Kinky Boots' Billy Porter and Barbara Cook will be among those paying tribute with special performances.

Revered musician and producer Quincy Jones is among the co-chairs of the gala for the educational institution, which serves low-income and at-risk students with a daily session of choral singing, according to the New York Post.

Stormy Weather legend Horne, a New York native, died in 2010, at the age of 92.
