Listing Jamie Foxx, Pharrell Williams, Ellen DeGeneres, Katie Holmes and Colin Powell in the same sentence might sound like the beginning of some sort of joke, when in fact they were all on stage at this weekend's "Apollo in the Hamptons" fundraiser concert. The best part about this story, besides the $3 million raised by the event, was that Katie Holes apparently stole the show with her dance moves!
Check out some photos posted on social accounts of some high-profile names that were in attendance this weekend:

The night was a great success and sounded like a lot of fun for those who could attend. Lenny Kravits joined Jon Bon Jovi on stage for his rendition of "American Woman" and Pharrell Williams performed a medley of his 2 summer hits "Get Lucky" and "Blurred Lines" (Daft Punk and Robin Thicke were not at the event). Katie Holmes was dancing to pretty much every song that was performed and even sang with Lenny Kravitz. Eventually, a chant erupted from the crowd: "Go Katie!" they shouted.
According to some sources, Holmes expressed her enjoyment of the night to her friends, saying, "I haven't had such a good time in so long."
At one point, Jamie Foxx brought some special guests up on stage including talk show host Ellen DeGeneres and former Secretary of State Colin Powell. Though you would assume the politician would have been out of place, Powell was up there dancing along with everyone, as evident in the photos above.
The Roots, Darlene Love, and Mary J. Blige also performed during the fundraiser.
