John Legend is gearing up to lend his talented voice to the worthy FEED Foundation. The singer will attend the first ever Clarins Million Meals Concert to benefit FEED, an organization that provides school meals worldwide.

On May 30, Legend and other stars will unite at Lincoln Center in New York City to celebrate FEED’s fifth anniversary and attempt to raise enough money to provide one million school meals for children in need like in Africa and Haiti.

“I am very excited to be celebrating the fifth anniversary of FEED as we have accomplished so much in the past few years. We have sold more than 550,000 bags, providing nearly 60 million meals for underprivileged children in 62 countries,” says Chief FEEDer and Co-founder of FEED, Lauren Bush Lauren.

Former President Bill Clinton, Natasha Bedingfield, New York Philharmonic conductor Alan Gilbert and others will make special appearances and take the stage. The Salomé Chamber Orchestra will be the featured orchestra at the event.

Clarins cosmetic company has also teamed up with FEED to fight the worldwide hunger epidemic. In addition to the concert, Clarins has been working separately with FEED to provide one million meals on its own. So far, they’ve reached 425,000 meals in only the first six months.

Tickets are already on sale, so be sure to purchase one before they’re sold out, especially if you want to attend what sounds like a spectacular evening and help raise money for a good cause.
