Celebrities are joining forces to support the people of Ukraine following Russia's invasion

Organisers of the 'Concert for Ukraine' live event have announced that Camila Cabello and Ed Sheeran will be part of the line-up. 

Other performers include Snow Patrol, Emeli Sandé, The Kingdom Choir, Manic Street Preachers, and Tom Odell. The event, which will air on British network ITV, will be hosted by Spice Girls star Emma Bunton.

Roman Kemp and Marvin Humes will also be hosting. 

"The unique event aims to spread a message of hope and support, and most importantly, raise funds for the ongoing DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal," ITV wrote on Instagram.

The concert is set to take place in Birmingham on Tuesday, March 29.

Concert proceeds will be given to the Disasters Emergency Committee. 

The UK-based committee "coordinates and launches collective appeals to raise funds to provide emergency aid and rapid relief to people caught up in disasters and humanitarian crises around the world". 

It is currently helping refugees from Ukraine with shelter, food, and medical assistance. 

Camila and Ed's addition to the line-up will no doubt help with ticket sales. The musicians both have songs on music charts around the world. 

Ed's hit single, 'Shivers', is currently at number 29 on the East Coast Radio Top 40. His collaboration with Fireboy DML, 'Peru', is at number 34. 

The 31-year-old also has a new song out with Camila. They collaborated on 'Bam Bam' - Camila's first single of 2022. The track is climbing up the charts around the world.
