Concert For Diana: Celebrate With Music

Diana_portrait_s_2 Nothing unusual about kids throwing a birthday party for their mom – unless of course the children are royals, the mother is one of the world?s most beloved women, and the guest list includes some of the coolest pop and hip-hop musicians around. The Concert for Diana, which commemorates the Princess of Wales, takes place in London’s Wembley Stadium and will be broadcast live on VH1, is one of the summer’s pop events.

"We wanted to have a big concert, full of energy, full of the sort of fun and happiness she enjoyed," says Prince William of the show. The proceeds will go to some of Princess Diana’s favorite charities. Featuring artists as varied as Elton John, Kanye West, Joss Stone, P. Diddy, and Fergie, the six-hour affair should be a blast. The show will be live on VH1 starting at 11 a.m. EST on July 1. VH1.com will also stream the entire event. VH1 Classic will re-air the full show an hour after its conclusion. Get psyched by checking out pics of the participants.
