NEW YORK (AP) — Cardi B, A$AP Rocky, DJ Khaled and Pharrell were among the stars who turned out to support Rihanna and her Diamond Ball, the annual gala that is dedicated to boosting emergency response programs as well as and education and health initiatives around the world.

Rihanna tells The Associated Press that ever since she was a kid, she dreamed of being rich so she could help others. Once she achieved her dream, she started the Clara Lionel Foundation, which is named for her grandparents. She says the connection to her grandparents makes the charity and the event particularly sentimental for her.

The Thursday evening gala was hosted by Seth Meyers and even featured a brief Rihanna performance as she rapped on stage with Pharrell Williams.
