Next month, the lovely and talented Rihanna will host her inaugural Diamond Ball in Los Angeles to benefit her Clara Lionel Foundation. And considering this is going to be one of the biggest events of the year, it’s only right that one of Hollywood’s power players introduces the singer when she takes the stage to perform.
BadGalRiRI confirmed on Twitter on Monday evening that Jimmy Kimmel will host the anticipated event and Brad Pitt will introduce the pop star, who will will be accompanied by an orchestra.
The 26-year-old also wrote in a statement:
“It is such an honor to have Jimmy Kimmel host this event. There is no one more hilarious to make the first annual Diamond Ball an incredible night. I’m blessed by his support. Brad Pitt is not only a phenomenal talent, but I admire him and am inspired by his philanthropic work.”
On December 11, 600 guests will attend the Ball which will be held at The Vineyard, a private 157-acre enclave in Beverly Hills. According to the foundation’s website, table and ticket packages will also include dinner and a live auction.
The Clara Lionel Foundation, which was founded in 2012, “works to improve the quality of life for communities globally in the areas of health, education, arts, and culture.”
