George Benson, Verdine White (Earth, Wind & Fire) and Rick Braun were among Ray Parker Jr.’s friends who came out for the installation of Parker’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Bill Withers spoke at the ceremony, which was also attended by Mindi Abair, Randy Jacobs, Tony Maiden, Jessy J and many others.

Parker hosted a private party at the Hard Rock Cafe after the ceremony where Benson and other musical guests performed to a packed house. Those “Ghost Buster” royalties must have come in handy when Parker got the bill for this invitation-only celebration that featured an open bar, buffet and entertainment for several hundred guests.
