NEW YORK, March 3 (UPI) -- Several stars in stage and screen rallied for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during a concert at Radio City Music Hall in New York City Wednesday.

The event was headlined by Elton John, who played an eight-song set and dedicated the closing number, "Still Standing," to Clinton.

Pop star Katy Perry also performed during the three-hour concert, dedicating her hit "Unconditional" to the Democratic front-runner.

Academy Award winners Julianne Moore and Jamie Foxx were among the celebrities there, as well, ABC News reported.

Tickets to the event ranged from $125 to an individual's campaign contribution maximum of $2,700.

The event, which benefited the Hillary Victory Fund, was also sponsored by 11 individuals who raised a total of $100,000. The Wall Street Journal reported about 6,000 people in attendance, but Clinton's campaign did not disclose exactly how much money the event raised.

The Hillary Victory Fund is a joint political committee benefiting her campaign, the Democratic National Committee and state-level parties.

Clinton's family also attended the concert, including former president Bill Clinton and their daughter, Chelsea -- both of whom spoke during the event.
