Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) joined singer Cyndi Lauper on stage at a concert Friday night, the Portland Press Herald reported.

“This woman is a hero, and she’s my hero,” Lauper told the audience, after inviting the moderate Republican to come on stage.

 

“And she’s a Republican,” Lauper said to loud cheers from the audience. The singer praised Collins for her work “with LGBT homeless youth.”

“And all the homeless kids. I was blessed to testify before her committee, which was bipartisan,” Lauper said, regarding an April 2015 meeting of the Transportation, Housing and Urban development subcommittee.

“We’re just glad you’re here,” said Collins. The senator later tweeted to Lauper, saying “I will back you up anytime- on stage or off.”

Lauper also tweeted a photo of herself with Collins and Rod Stewart. Stewart also played at the Bangor, Maine venue.

 

Lauper is best known for her 1984 hit “Girls Just Want to Have Fun.”
