The music mogul hosted the Art For Life
benefit event for the Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation at his
East Hampton estate in New York.
Edward Norton and Mary J. Blige, as well as
Jimmy Choo co-founder Tamara Mellon, were feted for their
philanthropy and career achievements during the ceremony, while
singer Jennifer Hudson also performed a short set.
Edward Norton took to the stage to accept his
award, and applauded Simmons' own charity work to help youngsters'
He told the crowd, "When you don't invest in
the inventors of tomorrow, the economists of tomorrow, the doctors
of tomorrow, (they) won't emerge because you haven't taught people
to think in their individual creative ways. Creativity fuels
everything that makes America dynamic."
