Pomellato jewelry hosted a special fundraiser for Baptist Health South Florida at the Ritz Carlton Key Biscayne Residences on Wednesday at which Andrea Bocelli sang for an hour for an intimate group of 75. Bocelli’s mother was seen in the audience, patting her heart as she was clearly moved and emotional during his performance of the theme from The Godfather in Sicilian. The blind Italian tenor’s encore was The Waltz from The Merry Widow. Bocelli had one request of the audience — no video of his performance. Also in attendance: producer Archie Drury, the husband of model Karolina Kurkova, who he said was at home with their newborn boy, Noah. How are things? “We’re sleeping a little bit, but Karolina’s breastfeeding every two or three hours, so that’s how it goes.” The baby joins big brother Tobin, 6.

A pregnant Paulina Rubio had dinner Monday with boyfriend Gerardo Bazúa at Caffe Abbracci, supping on risotto with porcini mushrooms and celebrating the news of her forthcoming second child.

Rockwell nightclub hosted the launch of its Monday night party with Nas, who performed some of his greatest hits for a crowd that included Timbaland, who was later seen catching up with the fellow rapper and friends over bottles of Moet.

Pitbull, a longtime fan of Grove Isle, was seen Monday at its newest, recently renovated incarnation — Palmeiras Beach Club, a hotel, restaurant, beach club, pool and spa. Since Palmeiras opened on Dec. 2, Mr. Worldwide has been spotted on several different occasions taking in the waterfront views while meeting with friends and business associates at the bar in the main dining room, as he was on Monday night.
