Conde Nast Taps Kanye West, Black Eyed Peas For ‘Fashion Rocks’ Concert

Rappers Kanye West and The Black Eyed Peas will join an all-star cast of performers during Conde Nast Media Group’s ‘Fashion Rocks’ concert in September.

West and The Peas will perform alongside a number of celebrity singers on September 7 at Radio City Music Hall in New York, to help raise AIDS awareness.

Proceeds from the concert will benefit Sir Elton John’s Elton John AIDS foundation.

“You can’t think about Hip-Hop without visualizing its style along with the beat,” said Conde Nast’s President Richard D. Beckman. “Today, the worlds of fashion and music are merging faster then ever, with multiple artists including Gwen Stefani, Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce, Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z, capitalizing on this synergy by launching fashion lines of their own. Fashion Rocks celebrates this unique marriage and promises to be one of the most exciting shows of the year.”

Beyonce, Christina Aguilera, Jamie Foxx, Nelly Furtado, Bon Jovi, Daddy Yankee, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, The Pussycat Dolls, Rihanna and Scissor Sisters will also perform during the evening, which will be broadcast the following evening (September 8) on CBS.
