Samsung held their annual Hope for Children charity gala in New York last night, and A-list celebs like John Legend, Jason Mraz, Jennifer Lopez, and Demi Moore 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.

Former president Bill Clinton was honored with the Samsung Hope For Children Ambassador Award on behalf of all his work with the William J. Clinton Foundation.

And musical highlights included Legend and Mraz taking the stage to sing their very own version of Bob Marley‘s anthem ‘Redemption Song,’ along with Harry Connick, Jr. performing to raise awareness for the New Orleans Habitat Musicians’ Village.
