With less than four weeks to go until a best of British line up come together for ‘Unity – A Concert for Stephen Lawrence’ it is announced today that Nick Grimshaw and Reggie Yates are confirmed as hosts.
Speaking about the forthcoming concert Reggie said: “To be involved in this event is a real honour to mark the amazing work that Doreen Lawrence and the charity have been doing in Stephen’s name. Doreen proves that one person can make a big difference and this is a great way of reminding us all that we are all part of a multicultural society and we are all racially equal.”
This event sees UK artists and the music industry working together to create a one-off concert and raise awareness and money for the Stephen Lawrence Trust, further providing opportunities for those disadvantaged by their colour, their postcode, their ethnicity or their poverty – across the UK. All the artists will perform tracks specially chosen for their social message.
Unity – A Concert for Stephen Lawrence is supported by Mayor of London Boris Johnson as well as Lewisham and Greenwich Council.
