These pieces were worn together during Jackson's performance of the song Black Or White with rock guitarist Dave Novarro, at the Apollo Theater. Jackson performed three songs there on April 24, 2002 for “A Night At The Apollo” a Democratic National Fundraiser which reportedly raised $2.5 million dollars for a national voter registration drive. Jackson was introduced to the stage that night by President Clinton. Jackson gifted the items to the fiancé of a colleague backstage with well wishes for their engagement.
