Mark Ronson Hosts 'The Other Ball' ft. Black Keys & More
Last night Arms Around the Child launched The Other Ball at the Highline Ballroom in New York City. Hosted by British producer Mark Ronson, The Other Ball featured an incredible performance by The Black Keys. Producer Jeff Bhasker served as the Musical Director for performances by A$AP Rocky, Mikky Ekko, Lykke Li, Miguel and Nate Ruess from Fun.., Samantha Ronson was on-site as the house DJ for the night.
On the first day of snow, guests sat on Rococo furniture in front of fireplaces listening to the most culturally relevant bands and artists today at the fundraiser event. The Black Keys performed a 30-minute set, including "Ten Cent Pistol" and "Little Black Submarines." Lykke Li performed "I Follow Rivers" and debuted a new song. Nate Ruess entertained the room with his hit single "We Are Young" and a cover of the Prince classic "Let's Go Crazy." Miguel brought the crowd to its feet with his classics "Adorn" and "Sure Thing." Alicia Keys and filmmaker David Lynch attended by video with messages for the evening's honorees.
Clive Davis spoke to the crowd about the critical need to help children living in extreme adversity and commended Leigh Blake, President of Arms Around the Child, for her 25-year history working as an advocate. Leonardo DiCaprio was also in attendance. All proceeds from the event went towards helping Arms Around the Child support children living in extreme adversity.
