U2 singer Bono, Fugees member Wyclef Jean
and rocker David Bowie are set to attend a Manhattan, N.Y., press
conference Wednesday morning (Sept. 8) for the charity organization NetAid.
The conference will include an announcement of the full lineup of the
Oct. 9 NetAid concerts, as well as the debut of the organization's website
(www.netaid.org), according to a statement from the charity. Veteran
producer Quincy Jones (Michael Jackson) also is scheduled
to appear at the conference, which will be held at 11:45 a.m. at the
Millennium Hotel. President Bill Clinton, UK Prime Minister Tony Blair
and former South African President Nelson Mandela will participate at
the conference via satellite, according to the statement. Organizers have
said that the main goal of NetAid, which includes three simultaneous
concerts in three countries Oct. 9, is not to raise money, but to raise
awareness of global poverty.
