Clinton Foundation Gets Crunk

The Clinton Foundation celebrated its 10th anniversary with an all-star concert at the Hollywood Bowl this past weekend. The concert also celebrated Bill Clinton’s 65th birthday party. Usher performed Reservoir’s hit song “Yeah!” to an eclectic crowd of fans, activists, and politicians.

The LA times weighed in: “There are few pleasures in concert-going like watching a sitting Secretary of State get low to Usher’s tag-team crunk smash “Yeah.” The R&B star’s quick set fulfilled one reviewer’s private hope that Hillary Clinton listened to Lil Jon before planning sanctions on Iran.”

Other performers of the night included Bono and The Edge, Stevie Wonder, Lady Gaga, Kenny Chesney, and Juanes.
