The songstress served as an honorary chairman for the event for the independent, not-for-profit agency, which has been providing inner-city children with free summer vacations since 1877. Yes, 1877. That's longer than "Hero" has been playing on the radio. Over 10,000 New York children get to experience the benefits of the Fresh Air Fund's efforts thanks to charity events like this one, amongst other efforts. Other attendees included Michelle Williams, Susan Newhouse, Tiki Barber, Zhang Toi, and Patrick Robinson.
