Boston is one strong, proud city.  

Thursday night, the stars came out in full-force for Boston Strong: An Evening of Support and Celebration to support victims of the Boston Marathon bombings. Among the celebrity participants were Donnie Wahlberg, James Taylor, Carole King, Jimmy Buffett, Jason Aldean, Dane Cook and Steven Wright.

"To say everyone is checking their ego at the door is a cliche, but it's true," said Wahlberg, per "To walk down the hallway and bump into Carole King and have her say ‘Thank you. Your city is so great...' There's no place for rock star attitudes tonight."

And yes, there was a New Kids On The Block reunion. Donnie teased, "We've cooked up a little melting pot of wonderfulness," adding, "The pot's still brewing."

Proceeds from the show, which are expected to exceed $1.5 million, will benefit The One Fund, which has raised more than $37 million for victims of the Boston bombing.
