Rihanna announced she is bringing back the Diamond Ball for another year!
The annual philanthropic event—now in its fifth year —will take place on Sept. 12 with late-night talk show host and comedian Seth Meyers hosting and Pharrell Williams guest performing, she announced in a tweet.
“Our 5th Annual #DIAMONDBALL is just 2 months away!!! I’m so excited to announce our host [Seth Meyers] … and for the main event, the one and only [Pharrell] is performing!!!” she said.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Clara Lionel Foundation, a philanthropic organization founded by Rihanna in 2012 in honor of her grandparents, Clara and Lionel Braithwaite. CLF’s mission is to fund efforts that promote health, education, arts, and culture on a global scale.
“One of the greatest benefits of my job was being able to start the Clara Lionel Foundation in honor of my grandparents,” the Grammy Award-winning singer said in a statement to ESSENCE before the first ball in 2014. “There is truly nothing I’m more proud of and we’ve just gotten started.”
