Madonna performs at Leonardo DiCaprio’s Charity Auction: $30 Million raised so far


The “Material Girl” helped raise $30 million in one night for Leonardo DiCaprio‘s charity auction this year.

Madonna performed as a surprise guest for the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation’s fourth annual fundraising gala in St. Tropez, France on Thursday night.

The singer, 58, played a collection of hits for the star-studded gathering that included Prince Albert II of Monaco, Madonna’s ex Sean Penn, Uma Thurman, Jared Leto, Cate Blanchett, Marion Cotillard, Kate Hudson, Tobey Maguire, Edward Norton and Tom Hanks.

Madonna later posted a video of her performance to Instagram, captioning the post, “Such an honor to be here supporting Leo’s foundation and doing what we can to save Planet Earth!”

Lenny Kravitz also performed, taking the stage later in the evening with Madonna and DiCaprio dancing and singing along behind him.

While $30 million has been raised so far, the auction continues online. Following yesterday’s preview, bidding will begin on August 10 and end on August 23. A catalogue of the items can be viewed here.
