Leona Lewis, Pharrell Williams and Chloe x Halle also are among the singers who often step up to benefit a cause.
Each year, musical artists from all genres use their voices to give back and show support for causes that range from animal rights to hunger, mental illness, veterans and the homeless. The late Aretha Franklin performed at many events during her musical career to demonstrate her dedication to philanthropy, from 2003's Clive Davis’s pre-Grammy party, where she sang with Alicia Keys and Justin Timberlake, to Elton John’s 25th anniversary AIDS Foundation gala in 2017, when she sang “I Say a Little Prayer."
Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, whose recent performances have supported disadvantaged youth, disaster relief, human rights, education and poverty, is often cited as an industry stalwart. (Martin is set to perform in the South of France at Midsummer Party for Elton John's AIDS Foundation on July 24, 2019.) But who really are the leading voices in charitable shows in recent years? Here, after a deep dive into Hollywood's most visible charities, are the top performers who contributed their services most often over the last two years.
