These pictures of R&B superstar Ashanti are a testament to just how beautiful and cutting-edge the singer still is.

Taken at Monday night's kick-off event for Songs for a Healthier America held Symphony Space in New York City, these shots show a radiant Ashanti, sporting flawless makeup and a gorgeous figure.

PLUS, look at her nails!

This is gorgeous nail art; I love how each nail is a different pattern, but they still match together. And the choice of choosing a neutral, albeit incredibly sexy, dress to pair this with is fashion genius.

Fresh, DMC of Run DMC,Jordin Sparks, and of course, Ashanti, among many others. You can download all the tracks for the album, including Ashanti's through the Partnership for a Healthier America.
