Taylor Swift Joining Black Eyed Peas Robin Hood Charity Show
"We are thrilled to have Taylor on board to benefit two very important causes," Fergie said in a statement. "Not only will she will be an amazing addition to our lineup, she is an incredible inspiration to people of all ages and her music gives a voice to those who feel left behind."
The Concert 4 NYC is just the latest of the 21-year-old country star's charitable efforts. She recently turned a tour dress rehearsal into a benefit concert, raising $75,000 for victims of the Midwest tornadoes. In 2010, the beneficent singer donated $500,000 of her own money to help those affected by the destructive floods in Nashville.
The Concert 4 NYC, which will help battle poverty in New York City, will also feature performances by Natasha Bedingfield, MC Hammer, Debbie Harry, LL Cool J and Carole King. Zach Braff, Whoopi Goldberg and Jimmy Smits will also be on hand at the star-studded event.
Tickets are currently sold out, but fans can donate $25 for a chance to win two VIP tickets to the show, as well as access to an exclusive VIP party in the park. For more information, visit RobinHood.org.
