Madonna hits the stage to give a ten minute speech at Chime For Change: The Sound Of Change Live Concert held at Twickenham Stadium on Saturday (June 1) in London, England.
The 54-year-old entertainer was joined at the event by Humaira Bachal, a Pakistani woman who is making a difference in education, and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, an Oscar-winning filmmaker who has documented troubles in Pakistan.
During her speech, Madonna announced she will support girls’ education in Pakistan and Afghanistan through her Ray of Light Foundation. She challenged everyone to join her “Revolution of Love” to “end violence, promote peace, demand justice and help ensure education for girls everywhere.”
