Continuing its long-standing tradition of presenting top-name talent at its annual gala, this year’s Race to Erase MS showcased multiple Grammy Award-winning artists Natalie Cole, CeeLo Green and Steven Tyler.

In recent years, galas have featured Elton John, Stevie Wonder, Taio Cruz, David Cook, Clay Walker and Joan Jett, among other recording superstars. 

Hosted by Nancy Davis, the affair raises funds to find a treatment and ultimate cure for multiple sclerosis. Dean Singleton, chairman and founder of MediaNews Group, will be the night’s honoree.

Taking place May 2 at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles, the always glamorous, star-studded shindig included a cocktail reception amid hundreds of silent auction items; a live auction of St. Regis vacations, experiences money can’t otherwise buy and an Aston Martin Vanquish; a gala dinner and the performances.
