With the stars joining together to raise funds for a well-deserving cause, Samsung hosted their 9th Annual Four Seasons of Hope Gala at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City on Tuesday night (June 7).

As the main attraction, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony teamed up as multi-tasking guests, speakers and performers - as Anthony is said to offered a rendition of “I Need to Know ” while Jennifer sand “Lets Get Loud” as the two ended together onstage with a duet.

With the soiree benefiting the Foundation Maribel - which is set up to help children and women through telemedicine - a grand total of $1.2 million was raised collectively.

Of the effort, Marc told, “The Foundation Maribel has to do with our family, thinking about my sister who died at nine years (brain cancer). It is a foundation of telemedicine, where doctors in the U.S., see patients anywhere in the world through cameras and X-rays, and collaboration with Samsung will help us a lot,” he said.

Other stars in attendance included Demi Moore, Kevin Jonas, Padma Lakshmi, Selita Ebanks and former President Bill Clinton.
