Move over Coachella — London’s The Sound of Change Live is shaping up to be THE music event of the summer. And with good reason, since it benefits the Chime for Change campaign for women’s and girls’ empowerment and and, uh, boasts Beyoncé as a host and headliner. Now, none other than Madonna has added her name to the lineup.
WWD reports that Madonna will join Blake Lively, Zoe Saldana, Gloria Steinem, and more as a presenter at the June 1 event at Twickenham Stadium, while musical acts will include Florence and the Machine, Jennifer Lopez, and, of course, Bey.
In a statement, Madonna referenced her own work as a founder of the Ray of Light Foundation, whose emphasis on aiding children dovetails well with the Chime for Change mission.
Queen Bey, Her Madgesty…all it needs is a cameo from Queen Elizabeth and modern monarchy will all be under the same roof.
