Stars come out for American Cancer Society Gala - Tucson News Now

For one night the Westin La Paloma resort rolled out the red carpet for celebrities and local residents. It was all part of the 2013 American Cancer Society Gala. This year, it was titled "Divas in The Desert".

The host of the event was former University of Arizona basketball player Harvey Mason. He also is a Grammy award winning producer and happens to have some famous friends. Mason reached out to three singers he worked with on the show "American Idol", Pia Toscano, Arizona's own Jordin Sparks and Jennifer Hudson. All three came out to perform to raise money for cancer research. "I am actually really excited to be here to support the American Cancer Society, Harvey produced a lot of my songs, it was the least I could do for him to be here and support him," said Sparks.
