Regina King & 'One Night In Miami' Writer Kemp Powers Honored at Moth Ball 2021

Regina King gets in the middle of Kemp Powers and Bradley Cooper backstage at the Bring On The Light: The 2021 Moth Ball held at Spring Studios on Tuesday night (June 22) in New York City.

The One Night in Miami director was honored at the event alongside Kemp, who wrote the screenplay for the Oscar nominated film.

The Moth Ball is an annual spring gala and the largest fundraising event of the year, and proceeds from the event go towards many things including The Moth’s Community and Education programs, which extend storytelling instruction and performance opportunities to thousands of New York City high school students, and educators around the world.

“Our theme this year, ‘Bring On the Light,’ is a hopeful request for the emergence of possibility following the darkness of the past year. It bodes well for all that there’s talent like Kemp — one of my favorite Moth storytellers and Ms. King in the world,” artistic director Catherine Burns shared in a statement. “Both stand as powerful examples of how storytelling helps forge powerful connections and creates greater empathy and understanding. They inspire and engage us all.”

FYI: Regina wore a stunning Versace dress.
