Black Eyed Peas to pay tribute to MJSeptember 25th, 2011 - 6:56 am ICT by IANS
London, Sep 25 (IANS) Hip hop group Black Eyed Peas is all set to return from their hiatus, to perform at the upcoming Michael Jackson tribute concert in Wales.
“This show is going to be an incredibly personal and moving evening for me. Remember that Michael’s music, his great, great songs, have been an inspiration to my whole life and certainly formed the sound track to my childhood… One day about four years ago, with The Black Eyed Peas well established, I got a call from him I will never forget. I then had the great privilege of working with him and getting to know him and his beautiful family,” contactmusic.com quoted Will.i.am as saying.
“That’s why The Black Eyed Peas wouldn’t miss being at the Millennium Stadium for this gig on 8 October; we all owe Michael such a lot. It seems plain to me that the real star of this tribute to Michael is going to be the music itself. And that’s the only way it should be,” he added.
The concert will take place at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium Oct 8 and features stars including Christina Aguilera, Leona Lewis, Ne-Yo and Cee Lo Green.
