The past few weeks have been pretty interesting for members of Beyonce's beehive as they've had to defend her "Bow Down" single, which some critics viewed as an attack on women (even though she never said the song was against women, as opposed to her haters of all sexes). Now, the singer (shown above in a gown from Gucci's Fall 2011 collection) has flipped the script and announced a global fundrasier for the "Chime For Change" empowerment foundation, which so co-founded with Gucci and Salma Hayek.
Entitled The Sound Of Change Live, the Control Room-produced fundraiser concert will be held on June 1st at Twickenham Stadium in London. It will also feature international stars Florence and the Machine, Ellie Goulding, Iggy Azalea, John Legend, Rita Ora, Laura Pausini and Timbaland.
Bey said today, "Our goal is to call for change for girls and women in the loudest voice possible. 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."
Gucci is set to kick in funds for the show so proceeds can be used for the global charities involved with the initiative. Tickets go on sale at 9am on Wednesday March 27 and folks can choose which charity their ticket sale will be donated to.
