October 11, 2019 4:00 PM
A concert taking place in December has the blessing of the Pope himself.
Lionel Richie and Bonnie "Total Eclipse of the Heart" Tyler are among the stars performing at the Vatican on December 14 as part of a Christmas concert organized by the Congregation for Catholic Education. Britain's Got Talent star Susan Boyle and various Italian singers also will take part in the event, as will a U.S. gospel choir, a children's choir, the Italian Cinema Orchestra and more.
A Vatican press release declares that the concert will reflect "Pope Francis' commitment to the Amazon," and will help safeguard it and its indigenous peoples.
People will be urged to donate to two different charities, one of which is working to raise awareness of the crisis in the Amazon among students worldwide, and the other which works to preserve the tradition and culture of the indigenous population on the Brazilian/Colombian border.
