For their seventh annual Power Of Women issue, Variety brought out the big guns!

The annual special honors New York women who use their fame, fortune, and force of will to shine a light on causes that need our help.

Kim Kardashian West was honored for her continued support for Children's Hospital Los Angeles. She not only donates time to visit patients, she also donates proceeds from her eBay auctions to the nonprofit. It's a great cause, but she's not even from New York! LOLz! Oh well!

EXCLUSIVE! T-Boz UNPLUGGED: Watch The TLC Member's Performance Of Waterfalls For The Sickle Cell Foundation! And Kat Graham Joined In Too!

Filed under: Exclusives!PerezTVKat GrahamGrammysCharityTLC

Your Reaction?

An amazing performance for an amazing cause!

Sunday night, T-Boz performed a soulful rendition of TLC's Waterfalls for the Sickle Cell Foundation Support Group in El Lay. All proceeds of the night went towards the Sickle Cell Foundation too!

In case you didn't know, the Grammy-winning artist was diagnosed with Sickle Cell anemia at just seven years old, and though she was not expected to have children or live past her 30s, the now 44-year-old beat the odds and has a 14-year old daughter!

Other special guests of the night included ATLA, Eric Bellinger, Faith Evans, Raphael Saadiq, and Kat Graham, who also took to the stage to perform her TLC-influenced single 1991!

We wish T-Boz was also joined by bandmate Chili for the Waterfalls performance, but she was absent from the event. It was still FAB though!

Ch-ch-check out the EXCLUSIVE performance of Waterfalls in the video (above) and see Kat kill it onstage and deliver a touching speech in the video (below) provided by Chideo!

Instead of coming to terms with the fact that wouldn't be seeing Teddy's show, the Kiwi native and her friends took to Twitter and Facebook to try and get Ed's attention… and it worked!

On her 20th birthday, the Thinking Out Loud singer stopped by the Auckland hospital to visit the birthday gal!

Jess shared her selfie with Ed and thanked everyone who helped made this meeting possible:
