Fresh from their wedding earlier this month, Melissa Benoist, Chris Wood, along with Jane Lynch, Kate Flannery, Wayne Brady, and more, on Saturday night to help raise money for low-income immigrants in the country.
The star-studded group, Yuri Sardarov, Gina Torres, Grant Gustin, Caroline Rhea, all of them were on hand Saturday night for a variety of musical and comedy performances, and speeches were given by Seth Rudetsky and James Wesley Concert for the Americas at UCLA’s Royce Hall, with all proceeds benefiting the National Immigration Law Center.
“It’s an important cause, and it is something that is worthy of attention,” Wood told reporters. “If we, as artists, are able to borrow what can we do, or, at the very least, the interests that we have to have something to do with the process, and I think that it is necessary and it is something that we have to do.”

Even though the Wood was revealed that he and De didn’t know what the song that they sang together in advance of the concert, they were able to appropriate (and correct) singing Irving Berlin’s “old Fashioned Wedding” – as if they had practiced together for months, and Supergirl star is kicked off the show with a solo performance of Carole King’s “Beautiful”.
Before the event began, and their good friend, Gustin, who performed in “Running Home” from the TV show “The Flash”, told reporters that the couple’s marriage is “great” and that he saw the duo’s coupledom a first spark during a special episode of their show. “When we were shooting for our musical episode, and we all realized that they liked each other,” he said.
When Rudetsky and the Spurs kicked off their third Concert in America, it appeared that “the Flash” producer Greg Berlanti and his spouse, Robbie Rogers, established and underwrote the entire event so that every dollar raised could go directly to the National Immigration Law Center.

“I think that everyone has an immigration story,” Berlanti told the crowd as he and Roger took to the stage. “Both of my grandparents emigrated from Italy at the turn of the century. [They told us], that is, the requirement for us to create opportunities for others to come as well. As such, we are very thankful for everyone who’s here.”
As the concert continued, more stars and told me their immigration stories, such as the Torres, the daughter of Cuban immigrants, and Saradov, who emigrated with his family to Baku, Azerbaijan, when he was only three years old.
“[My parents], but have to believe and have faith in the promise of this country,” Torres said. They have three children, a belief in the faith of the promise of this great country of ours. Not only am I proud to be a daughter of immigrants, I am proud to be a friend, girlfriend, cousin, niece, and daughter of U.s. citizens, who vote, who have the training, pilots, small business owners, and more, in their way, and their way to be the best they can be and to inspire the next generation.”

Saradov turned out to be the harrowing story of his family immigrating to the united states, detailing the horrors she experienced before she left the house. “When James and Seth asked me to be here, I knew that I had to come,” he said. “I will take a look at all of you, and don’t lose hope, because we will not stand for it.”
The National Immigration Law Center is the only national non-profit organization whose mission is to protect and promote the rights and opportunities of low-income immigrants, and for the first time, it was the only non-profit of the concert and really enjoyed it.
