Acting and singing and dancing and charity work, oh my! Matthew Morrison, who is known for playing Mr. Schue on “Glee” has many talents and one being a believer in charity.

While walking down the red carpet at the Art of Elysium’s Fifth Annual Heaven Gala at the Historic Union Station in Los Angeles, Morrison spoke with Celebuzz about working with charities, especially with the tough times the economy has suffered.

“It’s always important, especially in this business. A lot of people are very fortunate — myself included — to have a great job. To be a part of something that can give back to kids and that’s art related, it’s very important to me,” he said.

This particular event supports and celebrates 14 years of providing creative arts programming for hospitalized youth in Los Angeles and New York. It looks to deliver high quality art to over 40,000 critically ill youth annually.

Other stars who attended the event held on Jan. 14, 2012 included Brittany Snow, Julianne Hough, Jennifer Morrison and Elijah Wood who was recognized as the 2012 Spirit of Elysium Recipient for his years of volunteering and fundraising.

Speaking of charity work, Morrison recently tweeted his support for equal rights.

“I’m excited to announce that I have the honor of participating in my friend Dustin Lance Black’s play reading of “8” on March 3rd in LA.”

“Not only will 8 raise money for this important court battle, it will bring awareness to the issue in advocating equal rights for all people,” he added.

Morrison will join George Clooney for this powerful play at LA’s Wilshire Ebell Theater.
