LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Keep Memory Alive's 24th annual Power of Love gala was held at MGM Grand Garden Arena on March 7 to raise crucial funds and awareness for Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health.

The event brought top artists and performers Billy Ray Cyrus, Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds, Kelsey Grammer, Sammy Hagar, Paula Abdul, Derek Hough, Chris Isaak, Jimmy Kimmel, Katlyn Nichols, Greg Phillinganes and others together to honor music legend Neil Diamond.

Stars shared their personal connections to the cause, including Chris Isaak who talked about playing music for his mother currently in a memory care facility and Paula Abdul, whose father was treated at Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health, saying, "It's the one disease that's so unforgiving. You never get to wear a shirt that says I survived Alzheimer's." When asked if she will be performing on the Las Vegas Strip again, she smiled and said "you will see this summer."
