RUSSELL SIMMONS’ 13TH ANNUAL ART FOR LIFE BENEFIT RAISES OVER $2M!
I love to see anybody giving back, but I have a place in my heart for the celebrities that give back to such causes as AFL. ART FOR LIFE was founded by philanthropist and hip-hop legend Russell Simmons and it helps underprivileged children get access to the arts. The name of the foundation is fitting because for me personally, art gave me life and working in such a great Industry (Entertainment) gives me oxygen and allows me to create and express myself in more ways than one.
So I salute Uncle Rush and the many celebrities and Industry professionals who support this cause. The event was star studded with folks like: Mariah Carey, Nick Cannon, Angela Simmons, Grant Hill, Melanie Fiona, Tika Sumpter, Rev Run, Salt-N-Pepa and the adorable Diggy Simmons rocked the stage. And according to Global Grind, Trayvon Martin’s Mom, Dad and Brother were in attendance and they received lots of love!
Overall, it was a successful night and again, I salute Mr. Russell Simmons!
