In a statement released by City of Hope CEO, Robert Stones, he says:

“We find partners in honorees and honorees help arrange the talent.” According to Stones, it was Jon Platt, (one of the partners) who made the call to Beyonce and Jay Z and they said yes right away.

In total were about 1,200 guests along with a performance from Queen Bey herself.
