Alicia Keys and Hennessy Threw a Star-Studded Celebration in Joshua Tree

On Tuesday, a flock of celebs and VIPs gathered in the Joshua Tree desert for a mini retreat courtesy of Hennessy.

Alicia Keys, the face of the brand's new Paradis cognac campaign, hosted the affair and performed in front of a group of 40 guests and friends including Elizabeth Olsen, Gabrielle Union, Adam DiMarco, Alton Mason, Moses Sumney and Troye Sivan.

The Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Kellogg Doolittle House was transformed into a stage for Keys' performance, which included hits like “Empire State of Mind” and “No One.” Everyone was then seated for a 3-course meal from James-Beard semi-finalist Chef Jesse Shenker.

Other guests included Swizz Beats (Keys' husband), Samara Weaving, Sofia Boutella, Stella Maxwell, Chriselle Lim, Brittany Xavier, Jessey Lee, Cherie Chan and Brigette Romanek.
