Beyonce has added yet another date to her UK touring schedule, and this time it's all in the name of charity. [UPSOT] The "Halo" singer will headline a special concert in London on June 1. This is part of her work for the Chime for Change campaign, which she co-founded with actress Salma Hayek and Italian fashion designer Frida Giannini. "The Sound of Change Live" will also see other international acts taking to the stage at Twickenham stadium, which were announced by American singer-songwriter John Legend. [UPSOT] And while Legend and Miss B will surely be looking forward to this very special gig, Legend added that he hopes this wouldn't be a one-off. SOUNDBITE: John Legend, singer, saying (English): "I hope it continues and has a life of its own. And like we said earlier when we introduced the concert it's not just about one night, it's about a movement, and I know this movement has legs. I know Gucci has a long-term commitment to this, and I know that all of us that are part of this believe in this cause and think it's something important for us to do for many years into the future." Tickets for the event go on sale from Wednesday (March 27), with proceeds benefitting the foundation's various projects, which aim to help women and young girls realise their full potential and bring about change in society.
