*Black Eyed Peas leader will.i.am fulfilled a childhood dream Thursday night when he got to perform with Bobby Brown.

At the seventh annual Peapod Benefit Concert, will.i.am says he remembers being in seventh grade and wanting to be a background dancer for Brown, reports the AP. He and fellow Peas member Taboo danced while Brown performed his hit song, “My Prerogative.”

Other performers at the show included Earth, Wind and Fire, John Legend, Natasha Bedingfield, Ciara, K’naan and Ozomatli.

The Grammy-winning Peas also performed their own hits like the No. 1 jams “Boom Boom Pow” and “I Gotta Feeling.” Will.i.am also admitted that he wants to dance with MC Hammer, and will even wear the performer’s signature “hammer pants.”
