Chime For Change - London Charity Concert For Women
Beyonce headlined a star-studded charity concert at Twickenham rugby stadium in London in support of Chime for Change, a campaign set up to help empower girls and women around the world.
Before Beyonce took to the stage, Simon Le Bon performed with Timbaland, and J-Lo and Mary J. Blige sang The Beatles' "Come Together," as a raft of stars united for the Sound of Change Live show, which also featured John Legend, Florence + The Machine and Rita Ora. Madonna, Freida Pinto, Aishwarya Rai, Jada Pinkett Smith, James Franco, Ryan Reynolds, Jessica Chastain and feminist icon Gloria Steinem were among the presenters.
Sporting a slinky leather body suit, Beyonce had the 50,000-strong crowd in a frenzy when she performed "Crazy In Love" – joined onstage by husband Jay-Z. She also performed hits including "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)," "Run The World (Girls)," "Halo" and the Destiny's Child classic "Survivor."
Beyonce is co-founder, with actress-producer Salma Hayek Pinault and Gucci creative director Frida Giannini, of the charity, 'Chime For Change', which supports projects improving access to education, health care and justice for women. Partner organizations include UNICEF, the Global Fund for Women and Plan International. "It's time for change. Let's chime for change. This is such an incredible night for me," said the 31-year-old star.
Even Prince Harry sent a videotaped message of support. Giannini said she was grateful for Prince Harry's involvement, because "it's very important in projects like that, talking about women that some very strong male personalities are with us."
CHIME FOR CHANGE is a community of people working to promote Education, Health and Justice for every girl, every woman, everywhere.
