Russell Simmons Celebrates Art For Life

Art For Life was founded by all three Simmons brothers Danny, Russell and Rev Run and helps underpriveleged kids get access to the arts which we all know is so important in helping children blossom. Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon who praised Russell Simmons for all the work he and Rush Philanthropic do. They even raised over $2M for Rush kids. Some of the top donators were Tyler Perry, who graciously donated $100,000, Patriots owner Robert Kraft, Patrice Motsepe with $150,000, Ron Pearlman and Alan Patricoff. Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, Congressman Greg Meeks, Gov. David Paterson and NY State Senator Malcolm Smith were also generous with their donations. My favorite faces graced the red carpet included Grant Hill and Tamia. Rocsi Diaz, Melanie Fiona ,Babyface, LA Reid, Jill Zarin, MC Lyte, Tika Sumpter, Kevin Liles, and, of course, the entire Simmons clan including Angela, Diggy and Rev Run. So in love th the Simmons family. By now you know Russell Simmons inspires me daily. I look up to him so much in his work ethic and love for meditation and yoga. I truly hope in the future I can meet him and tell him how much he has changed my life.
