Emeli Sande

A host of big name stars including Emeli Sande and Rizzle Kicks have been announced for Unity – A Concert For Stephen Lawrence.

Taking place on September 29th at The O2 Arena, the concert is in aid of The Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust. The concert marks the 20th anniversary of Stephen Lawrence’s murder with his mother Doreen spear-heading the new SL20 initiative.

Doreen Lawrence OBE, Founder of the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust said: “Our aim is to build hope for the future. Justice for Stephen is about all of us, every one of us, in society having justice. I want young people to feel inspired, be confident and have hope in their own future. There have been a further 106 racist murders since Stephen was killed 20 years ago and there are still too many young people who do not have a sense of hope. We work every day to empower youth and we’re so proud that the music industry is joining us in reaching out to change the lives of young people.”

Alongside Sande and Rizzle Kicks there will be performances from Labrinth, Plan B, Jamie Cullum, Jessie J, Tinie Tempah, Rudimental, Ed Sheeran and Soul II Soul. More artists are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
