Nobel concert with the African touch

Published on Monday, 12th December, 2011 at 09:30 under the news category, by John Price   .

Some of the biggest names in pop showed performed in honour of equality at this year’s Nobel Peace Prize concert.



Oscar-winner Dame Helen Mirren and actor Rosario Dawson hosted the event featuring performances from such names as “Babylon” song star David Gray, “Starry Eyed” hit singer Ellie Goulding and Evanescence.

Sugarland, Jill Scott, Janelle Monáe, Angelique Kidjo, Miatta Fahnbulleh, Yemeni Ahmed Fahti, the World Youth Choir, and Norwegian singer Jarle Bernhoft also took to the stage.

This year’s Nobel Peace Prize was distributed to Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and Liberia’s Leymah Gbowee, and Tawakkul Karman from Yemen, and the concert in Oslo Spektrum remembered and reflected on the three inspirational women who campaigned strongly for women’s rights.

“Dear Africa. You are no longer the Dark Continent. You are the new light! Thank you for recognising women’s struggle,” NRK reports Leymah Gbowee as saying.
