Ed Sheeran, Camila Cabello, Emeli Sandé & Snow Patrol Will Sing For Ukraine

Ed Sheeran, Camila Cabello, Emeli Sandé, and Snow Patrol will perform at the "Concert for Ukraine" television event, which will be broadcast by ITV and STV.

"My heart is breaking for the people of Ukraine," said Cabello. "As refugees from Ukraine join millions of other displaced people around the globe, we all have a responsibility."

"I will be singing to try to help every human being forced to flee their home and in solidarity with those being racially discriminated against even within this humanitarian crisis," Emeli Sandé said.

Emeli Sandé and Gregory Porter will also perform at the Birmingham Resorts World Arena on March 29.

Ed Sheeran, Camila Cabello, Emeli Sandé & Snow Patrol Will Sing For UkraineAll Proceeds Will Be Used For Ukrainian Refugees

Several performers are to be announced for the two-hour event, which will also include short films documenting ongoing relief efforts and the experiences of Ukrainians escaping the conflict.

All proceeds will go to the Disaster Emergency Committee (DEC) in Ukraine, which enables the UK's 15 largest charities to help, including the British Red Cross, Save the Children UK, and Oxfam The United Kingdom to provide food, water, shelter, and medical assistance to refugees from Ukraine and neighboring countries. More than 3.6 million refugees have left Ukraine (as of 22 March 2022), while an estimated 6.48 million people have been displaced within the country.

Viewers will be able to donate throughout the evening, and ITV has pledged to donate all of the sponsorship and advertising revenue generated by the broadcast - about £3 million.

Global radio stations Heart and Capitol will broadcast the concert live and offer exclusive coverage. It seems that Ed Sheeran and Camila Cabello will sing together at the concert, after previously collaborating on the song "South of the Border" from 2019 and her new single "Bam Bam".

Since the launch of the DEC call on March 3, more than £ 200 million has been raised, including £ 25 million offset by the UK government.
