On October 15th, celebrities came out in droves to support The Clinton Foundation at the benefit concert, “A Decade of Difference.” Guests were treated to performances by Juanes, Usher, Bono and the Edge, Lady Gaga, Kenny Chesney and K’naan. Other celebs to attend included Ashton Kutcher, Jessica Alba and Fergie.

The concert celebrated ten years of hard work and raised money for our former President’s philanthropic organization to continue their efforts to impact global health, strengthen economies, promote healthier childhoods and protect the environment.

Clinton said to his audience during the star studded affair, “Nobody climbs any ladder alone and we are not ever going to build this country by telling people they are on their own. We have got to do America and the world together.”

Since its inception, The Clinton Foundation has helped hundreds of millions of people in 180 different countries. That includes, 4 million people who have benefited from lifesaving HIV/AIDS treatment, more than 12,000 U.S. schools, more than 26,000 micro-entrepreneurs, and a decrease of more than 2.2 million tons of greenhouse gases in major cities.

Perhaps the biggest headline to come out of the event was Lady Gaga’s “Marilyn moment,” when she serenaded Bill Clinton as well as Chelsea and Hilary Clinton. President Clinton joked that he was a little worried about having a heart attack with his own Marilyn moment, but the sixty-five year old appeared to be in great health following his switch to a vegan diet.

If you really want to see how celebrities are making a difference for The Clinton Foundation, check out this ‘Funny or Die’ video that shows what star power brainstorming looks like. If you put Matt Damon, Ted Danson, Sean Penn, Jack Black and more in a room, what what kinds of ideas will arise? Great ones.
