Broadway legend Liza Minnelli toughed it out and performed with a broken wrist during a charity event Monday night in New York City.

Minnelli broke her wrist in three places while rehearsing Sunday, according to Entertainment Weekly, but went ahead and performed at a cancer benefit with her half sister, Lorna Luft, who is battling breast cancer. Minnelli’s left arm was in a cast adorned with a pink handkerchief for the siblings’ first performance together in 20 years.

Before taking the stage, Minnelli, one of few entertainers to win an Oscar, Grammy, Emmy and Tony Award, said, “Nothing was going to stop me from coming here tonight. Lorna asked me to be here and I wouldn’t let her down.”
