Hollywood’s biggest stars came out in droves to support Hillary Clinton at her big fundraising event at the home of pop star Christina Aguilera and her fiancé Matthew Rutler on Wednesday night.
Guests included Katie Holmes, 4 Non Blondes lead singer Linda Perry, Muse frontman Matthew Bellamy, veteran lawyer Marcy Morris, producer Randall Emmett and his wife, actress Ambyr Childers, music mogul Irving Azoff, singer Christina Milian and band Great Big World.
The musical duo from New York, made up of singer-songwriters Ian Axel and Chad King, also performed along with host Aguilera, after picking up their first Grammy for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for “Say Something” with her earlier this year. Aguilera also sang her hit ballad, “Beautiful.”
“The forces against progress never quiet, so we have to fight harder than ever to keep moving our country forward and that isn’t possible without your support,” Clinton told the crowd.
Those who raised $10,000 got four tickets to the Aguilera concert event, according to the invite, and it was expected to attract 400 guests. The musical night made an estimated grand total of $1 million for Clinton’s campaign.
The party was set to a carnival theme and organizers told TheWrap that it was “very festive.”
On Thursday, Clinton will headline a fundraiser in Los Angeles hosted by Cynthia Telles and Joe Waz from noon to 2 p.m. Contributions will range from $1,000 for “Friends,” $2,700 for “Champions,” $27,000 for “Co-Hosts” and a cool $50,000 for actual hosts.
The fundraiser is expected to draw 75 guests, including designer Kimberly Ovitz, art consultant Meredith Darrow, Mosaic manager Michael Lasker, RYOT News’ Bryn Mooser, “SNL” writer Michael O’Brien, and former White House speechwriter Jon Lovett. The gathering — featuring Clinton’s campaign manager Robby Mook — will be held at Kives’ home, with tickets ranging from $250 to $1,000.
