Beyoncé recently teamed up with actress Salma Hayek Pinault and Gucci creative director Frida Giannini to launch a new international campaign, Chime for Change, to empower women and girls around the world. Now the singer is set to headline a concert that will benefit the initiative. The Sound of Change concert will take place June 1 at the Twickenham Stadium in London and include performances by Florence and the Machine, Ellie Goulding, Iggy Azalea, John Legend, Rita Ora, Laura Pausini and Timbaland.

The concert will be broadcast globally and proceeds from ticket sales will be distributed towards non-profits that further their mission of improving education, health and justice for females.

"Our goal is to call for change for girls and women in the loudest voice possible," Beyoncé said in a press release for the event.
