Can you spare $5,000? That’s the starting ticket price for a gala fundraiser that Christina Aguilera is headlining on September 25. The money benefits special exhibitions and programming at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).

The 29-year-old pop star will perform at the opening party of the museum’s brand-new Lynda and Stewart Resnick Pavilion, which opens to the public in October. Designed by Italian “starchitect” Renzo Piano, the 45,000-square-foot building is described by LACMA as “the largest purpose-built, naturally lit, open-plan museum space in the world.”

And if you’re wondering how the Grammy Award winning singer became involved, just look back to the June/July issue of Latina magazine. According to the cover story written by Senior Editor Angie Romero, Xtina is a big arts patron. In her home recording studio, she has prints by Shepard Fairey, a canvas by street artist D*Face and an original Banksy.
