Playlist with the A-List raised $250,000 for UNICEF’s ‘Schools for Africa’ campaign. UNICEF and the Nelson Mandela Foundation started ‘Schools for Africa,’ a campaign to promote education for all, with a special emphasis on girls, orphans, children living in extreme poverty and other vulnerable children.
The night kicked off with a performance by the evenings’ Music Director, Rickey Minor and the electrifying band from “The Tonight Show.”
Hosted by Bill Bellamy, performers included Jack Black (who sang “War Pigs” by Black Sabbath), Ne-Yo, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Jena Malone, Ryan Bingham, Michelle Branch and James Ingram. Kyle MacLachlan, James Denton and Doug Savant sang the classic “Sweet Home Alabama” together, while Angela Kinsey and Brooklyn Decker donned pigtails as they sang the Britney Spears hit “Baby, One More Time.”
Along with Alyssa, Adrian Grenier, Eva LaRue, Soleil Moon Frye and Laura Leighton were also in attendance.
