Beyonce, Iggy Azalea, and Ellie Goulding will be performing for Chime For Change in London.
Get ready for the best dressed show of the summer, AND it’s for a good cause. Beyonce, Iggy Azalea, Florence And The Machine, Ellie Goulding, Rita Ora and more will be getting together in London on June 1st to present The Sound of Change Live, a concert to benefit the Chime for Change Initiative, funded by Gucci. Beyonce, who is the initiative’s spokesperson, will also serve as the concert’s creative director, working both with the artists who will be playing the show and with the organization as a whole. In a statement made to Vogue, Beyonce described the mission of the concert, saying, “our goal is to call for change for girls and women in the loudest voice possible,” adding, “I am excited for us to come together on June 1 to bring the issues of education, health and justice for girls and women to the world stage.” The best part, Gucci helping with the cost of the production, so all ticket sales will benefit charities helping women.
But wait, there’s more. In addition to the sure to be amazing performances, the concert will also feature short films and stories highlighting issues effecting women globally, and will hopefully open some eyes to what the Chime for Change initiative is all about. Tickets go on sale tomorrow, March 27th, and you get to choose which charity the cost of your ticket goes towards. Girl power!
