Alicia Keys Featured At Sandy Concert

Alicia Keys and Kanye West were among the stars who helped raise money during Wednesday night's 12.12.12 Concert For Sandy Relief.

Keys performed the tracks "Brand New Me" and "No One." She also closed the night with a rendition of her "Empire State Of Mind." West's set included the hits "Power," "Jesus Walks" and "Gold Digger."

Funds raised by the concert, which took place at Madison Square Garden in New York City, will benefit the victims of Hurricane Sandy. The storm hit the Northeastern U.S. in October, causing an estimated $65 billion in damage.

Other acts included Paul McCartney, the surviving members of Nirvana, Eric Clapton, Billy Joel, the Rolling Stones, the Who, Roger Waters and Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.

The concert was broadcast live over a number of TV networks.

The event also featured appearances by various celebrities, including Katie Holmes, Jamie Foxx, Billy Crystal, Susan Sarandon, Adam Sandler, Brian Williams, Kristen Stewart, Jon Stewart and Chelsea Clinton.
