ABC’s Michael Strahan hosted the evening of music and comedy, which also featured Leslie Jones from Saturday Night Live. Jerry Seinfeld’s wife, Jessica Seinfeld, founded the GOOD+ Foundation, and Jerry supported his wife with a stand-up comedy set at the event.

Legend’s wife Chrissy Teigen, as well as Chris Rock and Tiffany Haddish, were among the stars attending the charity event.
