This year’s version of Heaven was the vision of John Legend, who was honored at the annual fete. Titled Love, Light, and Laughter, it started by having guests wandering through a dimly lit cocktail hour, roaming through the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica surrounding a glowing square of ominous light (perfectly calculated for ideal selfie lighting, of course).

John Legend brought together poets, musicians, and comedians to provide the evening’s entertainment, paired perfectly with a family-style meal created by Los Angeles–based chef duo Schaffer.

The evening concluded in a performance by Legend that brought the crowd to their feet surrounding the stage. “I am so grateful to my wife for being here,” said Legend as he received the Visionary honor. “I think being a father helps me understand even more how fragile life can be sometimes, and how much it is imperative for us who have so many resources and have so much power to try to make other kids’ lives better
