Tyrese, also a star of the "Fast & Furious" franchise, closed the show. Hamilton's performance went from upbeat to soulful as fans sang along with the Grammy-winning singer.

Kem, who was once homeless and a drug addict, told the audience he would give $5,000 to the YMCA in Brooklyn and $5,000 to Women In Need, which supports homeless women and their children.
