The Princess of all Hearts , The Lady with an ever pleasing smile, glamour and style, The Woman of Substance who spread warmth all over , a Passionate Humanist, a doting mother and above all, an inspiration to her generation – this was Princess Diana… Its nearly 10 years since we lost this eternal beauty to a fatal car accident, but even now it is so unbelievable that she is not with us anymore…
As a mark of respect and love to her, Star World pays a Tribute to Princess Diana with a six-hour special. Featuring some of the world’s biggest acts, the Concert For Diana will air direct off satellite on Monday July 2nd, 2007 from 9 am with a prime time repeat at 7 p.m. only on STAR WORLD.
Organised by Prince William and Prince Harry as a celebration of their mother’s life, the show will be held on what would have been Diana’s 46th birthday. Held at London’s Wembley Stadium, the event will see a crowd of 90,000 devoted fans gather to commemorate Diana’s legacy.
“We wanted to have this big concert that is full of energy, full of fun and happiness which I know she would have wanted,” says Prince William. “It’s got to be the best birthday present she has ever had.”
Featuring the world’s greatest musicians, this one-time-only event promises to be both memorable and meaningful. Stars slated to perform at this spectacular include Elton John, Joss Stone, Bryan Ferry, Lily Allen, Kanye West, Rod Stewart, James Morrison, Natasha Bedingfield, Will Young, Take That, Duran Duran, Pharrell Williams, Nelly Furtado, and P. Diddy. “We wanted to get artists that our mother really loved, and then artists that both Harry and I enjoy,” explains William.
Proceeds from the concert will go to charities supported by the late Princess and to charities of which the Princes are Patrons.
