Charlie Williams, the Broadway star of Memphis, was crowned winner of the Fourth Annual Broadway Beauty Pageant in New York City earlier this week according to BroadwayWorld.com.

Male stars from West Side Story, In the Heights, Wicked, and Fela also competed. The event benefited the Ali Forney Center, which provides short and long-term housing for homeless LGBT youth in New York City.

The center also offers free medical care, HIV testing, mental health services, showers, food, computer access, and job training and placement for gay teens in need. The Memphis Gay & Lesbian Community Center is launching a similar program this year.

Memphis is a Broadway show about Memphis D.J. Dewey Phillips, one of the first white disc jockeys to play "black music" in the 1950s.
