Michael J Fox took to the stage and gave a musical performance on an electric guitar that wooed the crowd.

The star reproduced his famous scene from the hit movie Back to the Future, where his character Marty McFly rocks Chuck Berry's Johnny B Goode on a red Gibson guitar.

He was performing at his annual New York fundraiser, which raises awareness and money for research into Parkinson's Disease.

Fox showed that even at the age of 50, he still has it what it takes to bring the house down.

He was diagnosed in 1991 with Parkinson's Disease and has since gone on to be a major voice and force in bringing awareness to the progressive neurological condition.

People with Parkinson's are unable to produce a chemical called dopamine, which leads to slower body movements.

There is no known cure.

The charity event was attended by stars like Julianna Margulies, Ricky Gervais, Ryan Reynolds and Joan Jett.

Although he retired from acting in 2000, he has been making something of a comeback with scene-stealing performances in TV shows like Curb Your Enthusiasm and The Good Wife.
