Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai will be joining pop stars Madonna and Beyonce at a mega charity concert in London next month.

The charity is called the ‘Chime For Change’ and is scheduled to take place on June 1st. It’s goal is to raise funds and awareness for women’s rights and empowerment all around the world.

Beyonce who is the concert director and co-founder of  the Chime For Change, is super excited to come together with other strong women for such a great cause.

“I am really happy that so many amazing artists and presenters have come together to support Chime For Change. Our goal is to have a great time together while we unite and strengthen the voices of girls and women around the world,” she said.

Other celebrity guest include Freida Pinto, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, former British Prime Minister Gordon and wife Sarah Brown, and Hollywood star Jessica Chastain.

Madonna, who won’t be performing at the concert but is one of the presenters at the event said, “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.”

The Chime For Change initiative is led by Marianne Pearl, the wife of former Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, who was held captive in Pakistan and beheaded by Al Qaeda in 2002.

Good job ladies!
