John To Perform At The Sting & Friends "We'll Be Together" Concert December 9

Today, The Rainforest Fund announce its spectacular lineup of musical legends performing in concert from New York City. Hosted by Oscar® nominated actor, producer and singer Robert Downey Jr., the iconic roster of globally renowned artists also set to take the stage with Sting include Bruce Springsteen, John Mellencamp, James Taylor, Bob Geldof, Shaggy, Ricky Martin, H.E.R., MJ Rodriguez, and Eurythmics with additional names soon to be announced.

The 1980s ignited a revolution of social change and awareness. The power of the music video was captured by MTV, and opened up a whole new medium for audiences to connect with songs, artists and with global issues. By the mid-80s, music was both uniting and changing the world with Band Aid, Live Aid and Farm Aid. The Rainforest Fund has been harnessing the power of music and the magic of live performances since 1989, and this year “We’ll Be Together” will be a tribute to the era that started it all.

Since the Rainforest Fund’s inception, Trudie Styler and Sting have been committed to protecting the world’s rainforests and supporting the human rights of the indigenous peoples who live within them. All proceeds from the benefit concert will go directly to the protection and support of the Indigenous people and their land, for they are the best protectors of this vital element of our ecosystem.

"With the Amazon blighted by fire this summer, and a real and growing awareness of climate change, there has never been a more important or more opportune moment to fight to protect our forests. All life on earth depends on their survival.”–– Trudie Styler
