SEPT 15 | Ne-Yo Hosts 3rd Annual Compound Foundation Fostering A Legacy Benefit

As important as music, dance, and songwriting are to Ne-Yo, giving back to his community is equally as important.  Seven years ago, the multi-GRAMMY award winning entertainer founded the Compound Foundation to draw awareness to and support for children in our foster care system.  The mission of the organization is “to forge healthy relationships, pursue education and training, learn entrepreneurship basics and realized their dreams.”

On Friday, September 12, Ne-Yo, along with Saturday Night Live cast member and comedian Jay Pharoah, hosted Compound Foundation’s 3rd Annual Fostering a Legacy Benefit.  

The event carried a Great Gatsby theme and was held at New York City’s historic Gotham Hall.  As the event’s 350 VIP guests, which included Kevin Liles, Motown Records’ Ethiopia Habtemariam, and Carol’s Daughter’s Lysa Price, to name a few, approached the grand venue, two Porsches were displayed out front.  The luxury car brand served as an event partner for the night’s festivities.  Porsche Cars North America also was honored for its generous support for Compound Foundation’s cause.  Cristina Cheever, the brand’s Head of Lifestyle & PR accepted the Corporate Commitment Award on behalf of Porsche.   

In addition to Porsche, Compound Foundation recognized  Walgreen’s Chief Diversity Officer Steve Pemberton and GRAMMY U Executive Director Jodie Blum.  Each recipient shared personal and moving stories that showcased why they were so deserving of the honor.  

In addition to co-hosting the event, funny guy Pharoah put his comedic and celebrity impression skills to work as he provided laughs for the evening.  His Trey Songz imitation won the crowd over.  But as spot on as he was, Pharoah couldn’t out do a live performance form the R&B heartthrob, himself.  

Trey Songz brought the guests to their feet as he serenaded the crowd.  And the man of the hour, Ne-Yo, closed out the evening with a performance of his own.  The hitmaker performed a medley of tracks including his new smash, “She Knows”, a single from his upcoming album, NonFiction, scheduled for a 2015 release.

After Ne-Yo shut it down, the attendees partied into the morning to soulful tunes spun by the legendary Roots Crew DJ, Questlove.

Here are a few pictures that capture the tone of the evening.
