Mariah Carey Central Park concert

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Grammy-award winning singer Mariah Carey was scheduled to make a special appearance at Saturday night's All-Star Charity Concert on the Great Lawn in Central Park.   

The concert was to benefit Hurricane Sandy relief efforts and was free for anyone who was able to land enough tickets.   Organizers expected nearly 60,000 people to fill Central Park's Great Lawn.

Major League Baseball will make a $1 million donation to the Robin Hood Foundation in connection with the event.

"Because baseball at the very end of the day is a member of the community that the team exists in and in every community where we do an all-star event, we try to aid the community the best way we can," said Tim Brosnan, Executive VP, Business.

Former Yankees manager Joe Torre was also to make a special appearance by reading a classic baseball poem.

Fans were originally supposed to register for the free tickets online but Fox 5 was told anyone who showed up at the gates would be allowed in the concert.

The NY Philharmonic was to perform songs from the baseball classic movie "The Natural."

    Realty TV star Kim Kardashian probably wished she did have one before she walked down the aisle with Kris Humphries. We might never have known about Tiger Woods' cheating ways if he had one. And figure skater Johnny Weir is insisting on one as part of his post-nuptial agreement. What is it? A digital privacy clause.
