Concert Raises More Than $1 Million for Charity

On Friday, December 3, 2010, more than $1 million was raised for arts education at the star studded 37th Annual Candlelight Concert which benefits the Orange County Performing Arts Center. The Winter Wonderland theme benefit featured an incredible lineup of entertainment which included musical performances by the legendary Smokey Robinson and rising musical star and winner of this season's hit show "America's Got Talent," Michael Grimm (seen above).

Corky Ballas, dance pro on America's #1 show "Dancing with the Stars," performed two numbers with dance partner Jackie Josephs. They did a cha cha performed to Michael Jackson's "Pretty Young Things" as well as a sexy Argentine tango. Traffic Jam, the 10 piece band praised by Oprah Winfrey on her show as her favorite special events band, provided dance music for the guests.
