A who's who of entertainers are looking to make it right for Brad Pitt.

The Moneyball actor has recruited an all-star lineup including Rihanna, Sheryl Crow, Dr. John and Snoop Dogg to perform at a charity gala he's holding at the Hyatt Regency in New Orleans on March 10 to benefit his Make It Right foundation, formed in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

But that's just the tip of the iceberg as far as the star quotient's concerned.

While Pitt will cohost the event with Ellen DeGeneres, among his celebrity pals due to attend and are doubling as Host Committee members are Sean Penn, Kevin Spacey, Spike Lee, Blake Lively, Djimon Hounsou, Chris and Jada Paul, Bennett Miller and Randy Jackson and Drew Brees who will be co-emceeing the musical side of the fund-raiser, which is being sponsored by the Hyatt.

Parks and Recreation funnyman Aziz Ansari is on board to headline the afterparty, which will also feature  performances from Seal and Kanye West. And a team of celebrity chefs including Emeril Lagasse will craft a dinner paying tribute to the Big Easy's long culinary tradition.

The event will raise funds for the completion of 150 sustainable homes for low-income residents in the storm-ravaged Lower Ninth Ward as well as celebrate the achievements of the charity thus far.
