Kanye West London, Feb 29 (IANS) Singer Gary Barlow is being sent to America by Princes William and Harry to talk with US music stars P. Diddy and Kanye West for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee concert at Buckingham Palace.

The 41-year-old is trying to recruit them for the event, which will take place outside Buckingham Palace in London June 4 to mark 60 years of the queen being on the throne.

He feels it is important to meet the artists face-to-face to make them feel “more engaged” in the spectacle.

“I’ve got to go to America because some of the requests I have are from the princes, so they’re acts I’ve got to follow up on. I try to meet all the artists because then they feel more engaged, they’re more in tune with what’s going on,” quoted Barlow as saying.

“I know as an artist myself, often you turn up at these events and you don’t really know what they’re for, or what it’s about. It’s so vital that everybody knows how important this event is for Britain. So I’ll try to meet everybody,” he added.
