They put their best green foot forward! Stevie Wonder, Paula Abdul, Emily Ratajkowski, Charlie Puth and Courtney Love, among others, attended the 13th annual Global Green Pre-Oscar Party at Mr. C Beverly Hills Hotel on Wednesday, February 24, to show their support for the World Bank’s Connect4Climate initiative, as well as the UN Foundation and Global Green Champions.
Stevie Wonder was excited to perform at the event and told Us Weekly exclusively, “It’s a wonderful thing anytime you’re celebrating people that are about the perpetuation of life. So as in Global Green, we have to love our planet. We have to want to make it more green. We have to make sure that we can sustain the planet and make sure that people are able to survive as it has always been meant to be.”
Partygoers were excited by the musician's performance. Former American Idol judge Abdul, 53, jumped up and down while holding her phone up to record Wonder’s amazing set. He went through a medley of nine of his greatest hits including, "My Cherie Amour," "Superstition," "I Just Called to Say I Love You," "Higher Ground" and "Living for the City," wowing the entire audience.
The event took place during one of Hollywood’s biggest weeks leading up to the Oscars this Sunday, February 28. In an effort to recognize the significant involvement the initiatives Connect4Climate and Action4Climate have in the film industry, Global Green CEO Dr. Les McCabe said in a press release, "The Action4Climate competition enabled more than 260 young filmmakers from 70 countries to present their local stories to a global audience, and they brought together over 170 Film Commissions and other film industry organizations to pave the way for an international ‘greening of the silver screen’ through the work of their ongoing Film4Climate initiative."
