The Gucci-founded, “Chime For Change” organization will host an awareness concert in London on June 1st at the Twickenham Stadium. The Sound Of Change Live concert will be headlined by founding committee member Beyonce with performances by John Legend, Iggy Azalea, Florence and the Machine, Ellie Goulding, Rita Ora and Timbaland.
“We live in a world where millions of girls and women are struggling for basic rights, the right to education, the right to health, the right to justice. But there is hope,”
said Salma Hayek Pinault at a news conference she co-hosted at the Soho Hotel today.
“At this point in history we have the resources, the tools, the technology to make a difference.”
The campaign launched in February (previously reported here) with committee members including Beyonce, Salma Hayek Pinault, Julia Roberts, Meryl Streep, Jada Pinkett Smith and a host of others.
Tickets go on sale Wednesday, March 27.
