(AP) Israeli and global leaders, local celebrities and Hollywood superstars celebrated under one roof to honor Israeli President Shimon Peres for his upcoming 90th birthday.

Peres is hosting an annual conference that brings together artists, thinkers and leaders to discuss issues relevant to Israel and the world.

In an event that kicked off the conference on Tuesday and marked Peres' birthday, songstress Barbra Streisand belted out a Hebrew prayer. Former President Bill Clinton was ushered to the stage by a quintet of saxophones. Leaders and public figures from around the world sent their good wishes for Peres.

Peres' birthday is in August, but the gathering is also serving as a birthday party.
