Singer Ronan Keating managed to raise a whopping $1 million for charity with his seventh annual benefit concert.

The Irish star hosted the fundraiser here Saturday.

He invited a host of pop stars to perform at his Emeralds and Ivy Ball, including band Lawson and former Catatonia frontwoman Cerys Matthews, reports contactmusic.com.

Keating also hit the stage for a short set, which included a duet with Matthews on Christmas classic "Fairytale of New York".

The event, held at Supernova here, pulled in $1.4 million for Cancer Research UK and the Marie Keating Foundation, which the singer set up after losing his mother to the disease.
