Issa Rae will host the gala Thursday with a performance from Childish Gambino.

Mustard will perform at Rihanna's fourth annual Diamond Ball, the black-tie benefit supporting the pop star's Clara Lionel Foundation (CLF) announced on Thursday (Sept. 13). The gala will be held Thursday evening at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City.

The chart-topping producer joins a billing that includes host Issa Rae, of HBO's Insecure, and a previously announced performance from Childish Gambino.

Last year, the Diamond Ball showcased performances by Kendrick Lamar and Calvin Harris -- with hosting duties handled by Dave Chappelle -- en route to raising over $5 million dollars to support CLF's global education and emergency response programs around the world.

Proceeds from the fundraiser enable the CLF to fund innovative education projects and scholarships, emergency response programs and local micro grants. During the event, Global Citizen CEO Hugh Evans will be honored with the 2018 Diamond Ball Award.

This year's attendees will be able to bid on a number of desirable items, including a JAY-Z On the Run II package, a Mariah Carey Vegas experience, a Fenty Beauty holiday bundle and more.
