The Sept. 15 bash doubled as a bittersweet send-off for Ron Fair and Stefanie Ridel.
The 12th annual Songs of Hope event on Sept. 15 doubled as a bittersweet send-off for Ron Fair and Stefanie Ridel, who just sold their palatial Brentwood home (asking price: $15.5 million). The music industry couple -- he a Grammy-winning producer, she a singer and former groupmate of Fergie's -- is moving to Nashville. Or, as Fair cracked, "from one Brentwood to another."
The two have hosted the fundraiser for City of Hope's Music, Film, and Entertainment Industry group for several years. The 2016 edition honored Pharrell Williams with the Clive Davis Legend in Songwriting award; composer John Debney, whose credits include The Jungle Book and The Passion of the Christ, with the Electronic Arts Composer Award; and Mike Posner the Trendsetter award presented by Pandora.
