Last night Pete Seeger, the legendary folk singer (born May 3rd, 1919 in Manhattan's French Hospital), was honored by the WhyHunger organization at their 35th anniversary dinner. The event, held at Gotham Hall, featured performances by Ashford & Simpson, Tom Chapin, and a host of others—all of whom joined the guest of honor on stage at the end of the night. The highlight of the night came when the 91-year-old smiling Seeger led the crowd in a sing-a-long of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow," which brought even the grown men in the audience to tears. (Get some tissues, we're trying to get a hold of video.)

WhyHunger, for those who don't know, is an organization that is "dedicated to fighting the root causes of hunger and poverty by supporting grassroots organizations that create self-reliance, economic justice and equal access to nutritious and affordable food."
