    It's not the first time the financier and his wife, Tanya, had a big name for their annual Halloween party spooktacular. Last year, Fergie, of the Black Eyed Peas, was the headliner, and the year before that, Chris Isaak performed, according to a guest invited to this year's bash.

    The singer, decked out a black leotard with a black train and a glittery, sequined belt, can be seen onstage in the videos accompanied by a half-dozen dancers, with costumed partygoers paying rapt attention.

    Forbes magazine listed Charles Brandes at No. 239
    on its list of Richest Americans. The publication estimated his net worth at $1.5 billion.
