Sirio Maccioni of Le Cirque created the special menu and an unbelievable line-up of performers turned out to help celebrate. Joss Stone and John Legend both flew half way around the world to be there and Kathy “Sister” Sledge joyfully sang her signature hit joined by the girl group, Epiphany. The evening concluded with show-stopping performances by none other than music industry legends Chaka Khan and Patti LaBelle.
