John Legend to Perform at City Year Los Angeles’ Spring Break Fundraiser at SoFi Stadium

City Year Los Angeles is bringing back its annual Spring Break event for the 13th year, and John Legend is set to headline this year’s event, Billboard can exclusively announce on Thursday (March 28).

The nonprofit organization’s event — which will take over the Gallagher Garden at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, on May 4 — will give its Service to a Cause Greater Than Self honor to City Year Los Angeles co-founders Andrew Hauptman and Ellen Bronfman Hauptman, who launched the charity back in 2007. City Year Los Angeles is an education-focused nonprofit organization that works for educational equity and commits to providing students across Los Angeles public schools with resources and mentors.


“The support of people like John Legend, Andrew and Ellen, and so many others is testament to the impact City Year has in the community,” said Erik Feig, founder and CEO of Picturestart, and Dwight Caines, president of domestic marketing for Universal Pictures, in a press statement. “We and everyone that supports City Year at this event want to see the young people of our city succeed, and this event raises more than $2M every year to help make that possible.”

In addition to Legend’s performance, honorary committee members for the event include Viola Davis, Rosario Dawson, America Ferrera, Phil Keoghan, Collins Key, Chris Meledandri, Yvonne Orji, Octavia Spencer, Julius Tennon, Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade.
