Edward Norton - Blige & Norton Honoured For Charity Work

Mary J. Blige and Edward Norton were celebrated for their charity work at Russell Simmons' annual gala on Saturday (30Jul11).
The music mogul hosted the Art For Life benefit event for the Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation at his East Hampton estate in New York.
Norton and Blige, as well as Jimmy Choo co-founder Tamara Mellon, were feted for their philanthropy and career achievements during the ceremony, while singer Jennifer Hudson also performed a short set.
Norton took to the stage to accept his award, and applauded Simmons' own charity work to help youngsters' creativity flourish.
He told the crowd, "When you don't invest in the inventors of tomorrow, the economists of tomorrow, the doctors of tomorrow, (they) won't emerge because you haven't taught people to think in their individual creative ways. Creativity fuels everything that makes America dynamic."
