So, how'd we look on TV? Last night was the television debut of CGG, when Top 20 Celebs Gone Good premiered on VH1, counting down the twenty most charitable celebrities of 2009. Months ago, we started with a list of 100 big stars who’ve shined this past year – actors, musicians, and athletes who’ve gone above and beyond to do good. From this 100, we left the voting up to you, and the 20 celebrities with the most votes made it to our countdown.
For those of you CGG readers who miss Rent, the Broadway, rock opera sensation, don't fret! Though Rent left the Broadway stage on September 7th of last year, the final performance is available on DVD today!
Any organization that brings together celebrities and politicians alike to support change and action is A-OK with us. Which is why this year’s Service Nation Summit on Sept. 11 and 12 was a huge hit; bringing out Hillary Clinton, Jon Bon Jovi, Alicia Keys, and Usher to support uniting Americans through voluntary community service. But it was Usher who held the honor of being named Service Nation’s Youth Chair.
