Glee's latest breakout star, Darren Criss, performed in an intimate concert for 150 people in West Hollywood on Saturday night.
On the FOX show, Criss plays Blaine, an openly gay Glee club member who gave Kurt his first kiss - winning over gay and straight fans alike.
The singer/songwriter is a strong supporter of the gay community. In December, he did a duet with Katy Perry of "Teenage Dream" for Trevor Live, a charity event for the Trevor Project - the only 24-hour lifeline for gay and questioning teens.
And Saturday night, he appeared wearing a suit with no socks while rocking the house with covers of songs like, "Let It Be," "Desperado," and the crowd favorite: "Teenage Dream." The benefit this time was for AIDS Project Los Angeles.
Before the performance, for $125, fans were treated to a meet and greet with the star. We're told that Darren took photos with each person and chatted with them for a few minutes.
For one photo, two guys lifted the star, who is about five feet seven inches tall. He joked, "I haven't been touched this much in a long time." He then went down the street to Siren Studios to help celebrate Perez Hilton's 33rd birthday.
Watch some of his performance at Rumor Fix.
