The Art of Elysium's Heaven 2017

| March 21, 2017 | Parties

The Art of Elysium honored Stevie Wonder and Camilla Belle at Heaven 2017.

Philanthropists, tastemakers and Hollywood’s elite joined together to explore their senses during The Art of Elysium’s 10th annual immersive black-tie benefit celebrating Visionary Award recipient Stevie Wonder and Spirit of Elysium honoree Camilla Belle.

John Legend, Chrissy Teigen and Evan Ross shared a laugh with Quincy Jones over pre-dinner bubbly, while Cara Santana and fete co-chair Christine Chiu impressed in stunning designer ensembles.

Draped in pristine white choir robes, members of the Unconditional Soul Choir lead guests through the rose-filled dining room and sang a joyful rendition of “People Get Ready.” If that wasn’t enough, Michael Voltaggio prepared a globally inspired dinner that was the perfect prelude to Wonder’s crowd-pleasing performance of hits like “You Are the Sunshine of My Life” and “Overjoyed.” To top off the evening, The Art of Elysium founder Jennifer Howell broke protocol to announce that Legend will receive the coveted Visionary Award at the nonprofit’s 2018 soiree. - Shontel Horne
