Quincy Jones and Michael Caine, self-proclaimed "celestial twins" who were born within minutes of each other on opposite sides of the Atlantic, will celebrate their 80th birthdays as honorees of Keep Memory Alive's 17th Power of Love Gala April 13 in Las Vegas.
Bono, Barbara Streisand, Jennifer Hudson, Carlos Santana, Chris Tucker and Whoopi Goldberg are among celebrity attendees expected to perform and/or deliver tributes at the fundraiser for the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health, which battles such neurodegenerative brain diseases as Alzheimer's, Huntington's and Parkinson's diseases, multiple sclerosis, ALS and memory disorders.
The Oscar-winning British actor, born on March 14, 1933, in London, and the storied producer, musician and band leader, born the same day in Chicago, have been close friends for decades. The Power of Love event marks their third shared birthday bash.
They'll join such music and film luminaries as Scarlett Johansson, Terrence Howard, Chaka Khan, will.i.am, Bebe Winans, Herbie Hancock and Patti Austin for the reception, auction, dinner (prepared by chefs Wolfgang Puck and Gordon Ramsay) and concert at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino.
