Hosted by Emmy Award-winning comedian and late-night host, Seth Meyers, the black-tie benefit will feature performances by multi-Grammy award-winning artist Pharrell Williams and Grammy nominated artist DJ Khaled. Barbados Prime Minister Mia Mottley along with writer and civil rights activist Shaun King are each set to receive the 2019 Diamond Ball Award in recognition of their humanitarian and social justice work.
“I can’t imagine a better night than this year’s Clara Lionel Foundation event with Seth Meyers, Pharrell and DJ Khaled. I am particularly honored to present Prime Minister Mottley and Shaun King with this year’s Diamond Ball Awards for their groundbreaking work. We are so thankful to them for joining us and making the night better than ever,” said Robyn “Rihanna” Fenty.
