It’s official Chime For Change is THE biggest thing happening this year – sorry to anyone else organising a music festival / concert / party but you’re just not going to be able to beat it. First they announced they would be having Beyonce as a headliner – SCREAM, then Jennifer Lopez was said to be joining her – DOUBLE SCREAM and now they’ve gone and given a whole host of new names who will be gracing the stage as presenters.
From Madonna, to the Archbishop Desmond Tutu to Jessica Chastain, Zoe Saldana and Sarah and Gordon Brown – they’re all going to be there. We can only hope that her Madg-esty, who has recently taken to going out in little more than her underwear and some fishnet tights, dresses appropriately for the occasion.
Rumours have also been flying this week that Jay-Z will also be performing, joining his wife on stage at the concert. If this was to happen there is a large chance that 80% of the audience may die with excitement. Bey and Jay (as we like to think they would let us call them if we were mates) have occasionally previously collaborated on a few songs together and have occasionally pleased their fans we joint on stage appearances.
The concert, founded by Gucci, will take place at Twickenham on June the 1st and it will be broadcast to millions of people around the world. Chime for Change campaigns for improved Education, Health and Justice for women and girls worldwide and for the first time ever concert goers will be able to choose which projects to fund through a voucher system.
