Sting part of all star cast at Apollo fundraiser...

August 17, 2014

Jamie Foxx danced onstage and sang with an all-star cast that included Paul McCartney, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on Saturday night at a fundraiser for the Apollo Theater.

The event included performances by Gladys Knight, Jon Bon Jovi, Sting, The Roots and Pharrell Williams. Knight performed a Motown medley, and Bon Jovi did soul music covers including Knock on Wood.

In one of the evening's highlights, Jack Nicholson, unlit cigarette in hand, gave Sting a standing ovation after Message in a Bottle.

In the audience: Barbra Streisand, Anjelica Huston, Howard Stern and Matt Lauer.

The annual event raised nearly $3 million for the Harlem institution. It was held at the estate of Ronald Perelman, who is on the Apollo Theater board.

Other guests included George Stephanopoulos, Donna Karan, Spike Lee and Bill O'Reilly.
