Goodness gracious. Just when we thought we couldn't BE more excited for the Chime For Change concert, another teaser has landed. Already on the bill for the singing spectacular that takes place on 1st June is Blake Lively, Jennifer Lopez, Iggy Azalea, Rita Ora, Florence Welch, Ellie Goulding and, err, BEYONCE! But the A-list names just keep on coming.
Today, it's the turn of Cameron Diaz and Olivia Wilde to do their bit in this just-released video. 'Somehow she would have a thousand balls up in the air at one time and be able to catch all of them,' according to Cameron while Olivia says, 'She is a true revolutionary'. No, they're not talking about Ms Knowles - they are, in fact, paying tribute to their mothers (it's Mother's Day in the US, dontcha know). Ziggy Marley and Beyonce herself also put in appearances to reveal how their own mothers have inspired them with Blake Lively claiming, 'She's the greatest celebrity I've ever met' - and this comes from the woman who's married to Ryan Reynolds.
Chime For Change is Gucci’s new campaign for girls’ and women’s empowerment and as the Co-founder and Artistic Director, Beyonce is set to lead a host of musical artists at the concert event taking place at London’s Twickenham Stadium. 'Our goal is to call for change for girls and women in the loudest voice possible,' she says. 'I am excited for us to come together on June 1st to bring the issues of Education, Health and Justice for girls and women to the world stage.'
As founder, Gucci will underwrite the concert event so that all ticket sales will support projects pursuing change for girls and women, specifically in the areas of Education, Health and Justice. Tickets for the concert are available through the campaign website, www.chimeforchange.org/concert and via Ticketmaster (www.ticketmaster.co.uk or +44 (0) 844-847-1693).
