Recording artist Felicia Temple of Teaneck, N.J., who competed on NBC’s hit show “The Voice” earlier this year, will perform at 11 a.m. Monday, October 30, on the Port Authority Bus Terminal’s Performing Arts Stage as part of the facility’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month commemoration.

Temple was diagnosed with carcinoid cancer in June 2015 and has inspired millions of cancer survivors and musicians with her personal experience.

Throughout this month, the Port Authority Bus Terminal has commemorated Breast Cancer Awareness Month in the South Wing’s Main Concourse by illuminating its cove accent lighting with pink wrapped gels on both sides, installing a signature pink ribbon decal on its floor, lighting its Performing Arts Sound Stage with pink spotlights during its performances and collaborating with ‘Park Assist,’ the terminal’s vendor who owns and operates the Media Mesh, to feature messaging supporting breast cancer awareness.
