Coming off victories in several Super Tuesday states, Hillary Clinton hosted a fundraiser in New York City Wednesday night, bringing out a star-studded lineup.

British music legend Elton John and pop sensation Katy Perry, both longtime Clinton supporters, headlined the concert at Radio City Music Hall, where tickets cost between $125 to $2,700.

John performed eight songs, including popular singles "Tiny Dancer" and "Your Song." He dedicated his last song, "Still Standing," to the Democratic presidential candidate.

And when Perry belted out her own dedication to Clinton, with her hit "Unconditionally," she told the crowd: "I sing this next song for her because I do believe this woman shows unconditional love."

R&B artist Andra Day also performed at the concert, singing "Rise Up." Other stars to make an appearance included Jamie Foxx and Julianne Moore, who introduced Chelsea Clinton to the cheering crowd.

The former secretary of state gave only brief remarks at the concert, saying that her presidential run was meant to "break down barriers."

The concert benefited the Hillary Victory Fund, a joint fundraising effort that pairs the Clinton campaign with the Democratic National Committee and various states' Democratic committees.
