What’s better than one diva giving a fierce performance on stage? Two divas bringing the fire on stage!
Jennifer Lopez will join Beyoncé at ‘The Sound of Change Live’ global concert at Twickenham Stadium in London on June 1. James Franco, Blake Lively and Jada Pinkett Smith were also announced to be among the presenters of this four hour star-studded show. Presented by Gucci’s CHIME FOR CHANGE campaign, which advocates for improved Education, Health and Justice for women and girls worldwide, the concert will be broadcast to millions across the globe and in the United States on June 2.
Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, concert artistic director and CHIME FOR CHANGE co-founder, who will perform a 45 minute special set, said: “I am really happy that so many amazing artists have come together to support CHIME FOR CHANGE on 1 June. Our goal is to have a great time together while we unite and strengthen the voices of girls and women around the world.”
For the first time, every ticket buyer will be able to personally choose which project the money from his or her ticket will fund. Gucci is underwriting the concert event so that all ticket sales will support selected projects. A sell-out concert is guaranteed to fund at least 120 projects supporting girls and women in more than 70 countries from ticket sales alone. Viewers around the world will also have the opportunity to lend their support by donating online at chimeforchange.org and fb.com/chimeforchange, and through a mobile text-to-give campaign.
