Jennifer López has received an award from Muhammad and Lonnie Ali at the Muhammad Ali Celebrity Fight Night Awards XIX at the J. W. Marriott Desert Ridge Resort in Phoenix, Arizona, held on March 23.
   López, who also performed at the event, said, ‘Muhammad has always been this massive presence, [a] larger-than-life person, who inspired the world, and showed us that anyone can achieve their dreams.’
   López sung a duet with Andrea Bocelli as well as a solo number.
   Others who took to the stage included Billy Crystal, Billy Ray Cyrus, Steve Martin and Haley Reinhart. Guests included Mario López, Tate Stevens and Verne Troyer.
   The awards are held for charity, to help find a cure for Parkinson’s disease. Ali himself, now 71, has suffered from the disease since 1984. This year’s event brought in US$7·2 million. A total of US$80 million has been raised to date.
   López attended the event with boyfriend Casper Smart.
