“Girl Power” takes on a whole new meaning as pop divas Madonna and Beyonce team up with fellow pop divas (just kidding, they’re political activists) Gloria Steinem and Bishop Desmond Tutu for Sound of Change Live, a benefit concert that will spread the message of female empowerment.

Madonna will serve as a presenter, while — as previously announced — Beyonce will take the stage alongside Florence and the Machine and Ellie Goulding for the four-hour concert. Other artists who will makes appearances include Jennifer Lopez, Rita Ora, John Legend, HAIM, Iggy Azalea and Timbaland.
