Last year Jimmy Kimmel was asked to bring in a few laughs at Rihanna’s (center) Diamond Ball fundraiser, now Kevin Hart has been asked to be the same. For the 2nd annual Diamond Ball, Kevin will host the upcoming night this December.
Rihanna’s second annual Diamond Ball fundraiser will boast two major talents when the black-tie fundraiser hits Santa Monica on Dec. 10. Lionel Richie will perform and Kevin Hart will host this year’s Diamond Ball, which raises money for Rihanna’s Clara Lionel Foundation. Founded in 2012, the CLF is named in honor of her grandparents and “works to improve the quality of life for communities globally in the areas of health, education, arts and culture,” according to a press release. “I’m so proud of the work the Clara Lionel Foundation has done in its first year and can’t wait to celebrate with the iconic Lionel Richie and incredibly talented Kevin Hart at this year’s Diamond Ball,” Rihanna said in a statement. This year’s event will take place at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica on Dec. 10.
