Beyoncé leads lineup in Chime for Change

LONDON -- Beyoncé and a few famous friends -- including John Legend, Jennifer Lopez and Madonna -- turned the home of English rugby into a fortress for women's rights at a star-studded charity concert Saturday.

Beyoncé headlined a concert at Twickenham rugby stadium in London in support of Chime for Change, a campaign set up to help empower girls and women around the world, The Associated Press reports.

The singer had the 50,000-strong crowd in a frenzy when she performed "Crazy In Love" -- joined onstage by husband Jay-Z.

Earlier, Simon Le Bon performed with Timbaland, and J.Lo and Mary J. Blige sang The Beatles' "Come Together," as a raft of stars united for the Sound of Change Live show, which also featured John Legend, Florence + The Machine and Rita Ora.

Feminist icon Gloria Steinem was among the presenters. Even Prince Harry sent a videotaped message of support.

Beyoncé is co-founder, with actress-producer Salma Hayek Pinault and Gucci creative director Frida Giannini, of the charity, which supports projects improving access to education, health care and justice for women. Partner organizations include UNICEF, the Global Fund for Women and Plan International.
