Today, it was announced that the 2018 Diamond Ball will be hosted by comedian/actress Issa Rae with a special guest performance by Childish Gambino.

Taking place at Cipriani Wall Street in NYC next month, Rihanna says, "Issa Rae and Childish Gambino were the dream duo for the fourth annual Diamond Ball and they're coming!!! We are honored and grateful to have them help us celebrate the Clara Lionel Foundation this year."

As part of the inspired and celebratory evening Global Citizen CEO Hugh Evans will recieve the Diamond Ball Award for Humanitarian work and contributions.

The fourth annual gala will take place on Sept. 13 to fundraise money for the Clara Lionel Foundation, founded by Rihanna in 2012 to promote the improvement of health, and further empowering education arts and culture on a global scale.
