Also taking the stage were the affable duo Alex and Sierra, the first and only group to win on the X Factor. The couple was so inspired by MasterPeace's mission and reach that they enthusiastically made the first pledges of the evening (and we wouldn't be surprised if a MasterPeace collaboration is in the works!).
Celebrities in attendance were Ric Ocasek of The Cars and actor Forest Whitaker, whose daughter was celebrating her 16th birthday.
The benefit concert raised funds for six promising MasterPeace club initiatives in Bosnia and Herzegovina, India, Sudan, Guinea, Morocco, and Afghanistan. If you couldn't attend the concert but would like to donate, head over to MasterPeace today!
