The West Coast has the sunshine and this Mike Love and David Lee Roth duet. The singers got together at Thursday night's 21st annual ELLA Awards benefit to perform "California Girls" for the first time ever. Love, who was the evening's guest of honor, co-wrote the classic Beach Boys single with Brian Wilson; Roth, who traveled from Tokyo to attend the event, famously covered "California Girls" on his solo EP, "Crazy from the Heat." Other performers during the ELLA Awards included Bill Medley, Dean Torrence, Micky Dolenz, Christopher Cross, America, Lucy Lawless and Rita Wilson.
