The annual Samsung Hope for Children charity gala was held in New York City last night at Cipriani Wall Street. Many A-list celebrity such as Jennifer Lopez, Demi Moore and John Legend were in attendance to help raise money for children in need.
Nearly 800 people attended and over $1.4 million was raised to support more than 30 charities and 400 schools that all focus on children’s education, sustainability, and healthcare.
John Legend and Jason Mraz provided musical entertainment at the event with their own version of Bob Marley‘s anthem “Redemption Song.” Harry Connick, Jr. performed as well to raise awareness for the New Orleans Habitat Musicians’ Village.
