A host of stars – including Lady Gaga, Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder, Billy Joel, and Mary J. Blige – helped celebrate Sting's 60th birthday on Saturday night, and raised $3.7 million for charity in the process.
The stars took part in a massive charity concert at New York’s Beacon Theater in front of an audience that included Trudie Styler, Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson, Jake Gyllenhaal and Melanie Griffith, as well as 32 members of Britain’s Royal Scots Dragoon Guards, who have all completed missions in Afghanistan.
The event saw several once-in-a-lifetime collaborations and performances, but the highlight of the night was undoubtably the version of Every Breath You Take that closed the show, featuring the entire cast of performers.
Proceeds from the event went to the Robin Hood Foundation to tackle poverty in New York City.
