Monster CEO Noel Lee presented his top retailers from around the globe with awards for their achievements during what everyone agreed was a very difficult year. Lee then brought onto the stage and introduced Miles Davis family members, Cheryl Davis (wife) and Vincent Wilburn Jr. (nephew) to greet the audience. MONSTER recently released a special limited edition set of in-earphones to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Miles Davis album Kind of Blue.

John Legend was introduced by Noel Lee and he performed a great show to a packed Paris Ballroom. His soulful music was backed by his powerhouse of a band and his voice and delivery, reminiscent of early Marvin Gay, kept the audience drawn in throughout the show. The show came to a great thunderous climax during his cover of The Beatles Abbey Road tune… I Want You (She’s So Heavy).

Noel Lee came out after Legend’s set and presented him with a MONSTER Lifetime Achievement Award before they both introduced surprise guest Stevie Wonder. The crowd jumped to it’s feet for the duration of the show and a sea of cell phones went up as people were eager to capture a shot of the two performers sitting keyboard to keyboard and performing together for this special rare appearance. They performed Ordinary People and My Cherie Amour to close out the night.
