Last Night in New York City, we were on board as Swizz Beatz Hosted The Bronx Charter School For The Arts 3rd Annual Art Auction Fundraiser. A few of our Celebrity Friends were on deck including Shontelle , Estelle and New Friend of the Fly People, Tika Sumpter.
The auction featured original art by Bronx Charter School For The Arts elementary student artist. In addition, R&B Soulstress Estelle was the featured performer doing a plethora of hits including ‘American Boy’ ,’Freak’ ‘DJ Play The Beat’ and her latest Smash ‘Break My Heart’.
Swizzy and Estelle brought the place down!
Swizz came fully equipped with contributions for the auction from his celebrity friends including his wife Alicia Keys ( he auctioned of two VIP All Access Tickets to her Upcoming Performance a the beacon Theater in NYC), Jay-Z (His Entire Album Catalogue ‘Signed’), Beyonce (Her Entire Album Catalogue ‘Signed’) and Carmelo Anthony (A Signed Jersey, Sneakers and Basketball).
You do know I had to stop myself from bidding on the Beyonce Pack… I would have gotten ugly, lol.
The Students opened the show and did an Amazing job!
A moment of silence for Swizzy’s Tom Ford Blazer. Fly.
Tika looked Amazing, she’s so beautiful in person, and was extremely humble and vibrant.
Shontelle Looked Great, we chatted for a bit, it’s always overwhelming when your favorite Celebrities know and love your work.
All of the proceeds of the auction benefits Bronx Arts’ 2011-2012 After-school Program. The funds will provide learning materials like Computers and books to aid in the academic intervention for struggling learners as well as artistic and enlightenment programming.
