Highlights from the night included heartfelt musical tributes from Chaka Khan and Stevie Wonder, hysterical stand-up comedy from Chris Tucker and nostalgic remarks about the guests of honor from Whoopi Goldberg. At the end of the evening, Wonder led a "Happy Birthday" serenade to Jones and Caine, followed by an awe-inspiring performance of "We are the World" by the entire celebrity lineup.

Performers and celebrity supporters who attended the event included music and film luminaries Amy Poehler, Arsenio Hall, Bebe Winans, Bono, Carlos Santana, Chaka Khan, Chris Tucker, Greg Phillinganes, Herbie Hancock, James Ingram, Jennifer Hudson, Jordin Sparks, Larry King, Marcus Miller, Nikki Yanofsky, Patti Austin, Paulinho Da Costa, Rashida Jones, Siedah Garrett, Snoop Dogg (aka Snoop Lion), Stevie Wonder, Tom Scott, Vinnie Colaiuta, Whoopi Goldberg, will.i.am and Will Smith.

Continuing with its 17-year history, the Power of Love Gala showcased a celebrity-chef-packed dinner prepared by award-winning chef Gordon Ramsay. Guests were treated to a Dom Perignon reception and bid on one-of-a-kind live and silent auction items including an 11-day Mediterranean cruise and a football helmet signed by the 2013 NFL champions, the Baltimore Ravens.

In addition, donors from across the country were able to contribute to Keep Memory Alive's cause for the first time through a text-to-donate campaign. Now through the end of the year, donors can text "MEMORY" to 80888 to give $10 to support brain health research at Cleveland Clinic.

The Power of Love Gala was produced by headlining sponsor Bill Edwards Presents Inc. in partnership with Las Vegas, official sponsors HARMAN and Playground Sessions, and Keep Memory Alive, the fundraising arm of the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health.
