Beyonce and a few famous friends — including John Legend and Madonna — are turning the home of English rugby into a fortress for women’s rights.

Beyonce is headlining a concert at Twickenham rugby stadium in London on Saturday in support of Chime for Change, a campaign set up to help empower girls and women around the world.

Jennifer Lopez, John Legend, Florence + The Machine, Rita Ora and Simon Le Bon also are performing at the Sound for Change show.
