Founded in 1997, the VH1 Save The Music Foundation has been partnering with public schools to ensure that the musical tutelage of our country's youth never falls by the wayside. Last year's Hamptons Live benefit was such a success with Jason Derulo ripping off his shirt while belting out talk dirty to me, that we figured there was no way to top his performance. Boy were we wrong. The recent VMA winners and triple platinum ladies of Fifth Harmony set the stage on fire with killer choreography and red leotards that slayed. Besides looking gorgeous, the joy in their performance hammered home the point of the evening, the importance of musical education.
After event co-chairs Julie and William Macklowe joked with the crowd about having porto potties in their yard, they couldn't help but comment on the band's sexy dance moves. All we can say is damn, these ladies know how to shut it down. The crowd which included model Jessica White and financier Marc Leder at a private residence in Sagaponack went crazy for the gorgeous gals singing, worth it and work from home.
So far, events like this one have enabled the nonprofit to donate more than $52 million worth of musical instruments to public schools over the past 19 years. And, we learned that this weekend’s party raised more than $1 million. We love stats like this. Hamptons Live thrives on the East End!
