Beyonce Headlines the Chime for Change concert Sponsored by Gucci


20130603-095538.jpg

The fight for women’s rights gathered thousands at the Twickenham Stadium London on Saturday night.

A-List celebs Madonna, J-Lo, Timbaland and many others joined to support Beyonce and her “Chime for Change” campaign, which advocates equal rights for women and girls worldwide.

The highlight of the night was Bey and Jay-z’s Crazy in Love duet. The crowd went wild when Jigga kissed his wife, symbolizing that a strong woman can empower others, (even her man) to take a stand.

Another memorable set was Mary J Blige and Jennifer Lopez performing a rendition of the Beatles Come Together.

Other attendees and performers included Florence and the Machine, Jada Pinkett Smith, Pippa Middleton, Sarah Ferguson and daughters Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, Blake Lively and Jessica Chastain whom all donations will benefit female victims of human trafficking, sexual harassment, rape and sexual slavery and other disgraces in over 200 countries.

Founded by Beyonce and backed by Gucci, Chime for Change also brought out the likes of Frida Giannini (Gucci Creative Director) and Salma Hayek Pinault, whose husband Henri Francois practically controls the Gucci brand and many others.

By the end of the night, fans were singing along as queen Bey belted out ” Girls! We run this mutha!” and $4.3 million raised for the cause, with ticket sales going to the purchasers charity of choice.
