Grammy weekend is full swing and artists from around the world have made their way to Hollywood to celebrate music.

On Thursday night as some of the industries biggest stars attended a number of pre-Grammy celebrations, there was one event that focused on one thing, and one thing only … The kids of Boyle Heights.

A number of stars arrived to Hollywood hot spot Avalon to support Will.i.am and his i.am.angel foundation’s Trans4m benefit concert, an event in efforts to raise money for disadvantage teens.

“It’s important to me because it’s important to the kids that need this program,” the Black Eyed Peas front man shared with HH. “The program is i.am College Track where we get kids on track to go to college and surround them with mentors and skills sets around science, technology, engineering and mathematics.”

With the biggest news of the day being Justin Bieber’s DUI arrest, we even asked the producer what his advice would be to the young star, but he simply said, “Justin has the tools, these kids do not.”

While on the red carpet for the big soiree, HipHollywood caught up with Black Eyed Peas member Taboo who expressed his deepest appreciation for Will’s efforts. “… For an event like this where we get to support will.i.am, just be part of something that’s been going on for many years. Peapod started this and Will took it to the next level with i.am.angel,” Taboo said.

Also in attendance, r&b group, Bell Biv DeVoe who provided entertainment for the night and Grammy nominated singer, Chrisette Michele. HH talked with the R&B Divas newcomer to get her reaction on being nominated for Best R&B Album.

“It feels great, this is the third time,” she told us. “So it feels like maybe I’m doing the right thing with my freaking life.”

Be sure to tune in to the Grammys on Sunday night at 8 p.m. on CBS. As for more on the will.i.am and the i.am.angel foundation head over to http://iamangelfoundation.org/

But we digress…

Taylor was on her way to see Jackson’s “State Of The World” tour when her flight got delayed and she missed the show. Naturally, she took to Twitter to express her disappointment.
