Beyonce and Madonna have joined hands with activist Gloria Steinem and Bishop Desmond Tutu for a benefit concert to be held on June 1, reported a newspaper.
For the 4-hour concert, both the singers will join other artists including Jennifer Lopez, Florence and the Machine, Ellie Goulding, John Legend and Timbaland to perform. Madonna will serve as a presenter for the show. "Sixty percent of the children in the world not in school are girls. Two-thirds of the world's illiterate are women. I do not accept this. We need to change this and we will change this," Madonna said.
The concert will be held at Twickenham Stadium, London. The singers will help to spread the message of women empowerment. It is organised by the Chime for Change campaign and the spectators can select which project their ticket money will benefit.
