One highlight of the night was Camila Cabello’s rendition of Michael Jackson’s “Man in the Mirror” which she performed with a full band. As Michael himself was a philanthropist, it was only fitting that his song was the finale of the benefit concert.
In an instagram post following the show, the former Fifth Harmony singer quoted the King of Pop: “‘In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.’- MJ”
The proceeds of the star-studded one-night event went to benefit the ACLU, an organization which protects and provides resources for women, immigrants, Muslims and other marginalized people.
