On Friday, September 21, Elton John will perform live on YouTube, headlining the Peace One Day Celebration ‘Global Truce 2012’ concert at Wembley Arena.

Staged on Peace Day, the concert also includes performances from BRIT award-winning James Morrison and YouTube sensations 2CELLOS. There will be introductions from Peace One Day ambassador Jude Law, Lily Cole and the organisation’s founder, Carnegie Wateler Peace Prize-winner, Jeremy Gilley. The show is set to be the biggest event of Peace One Day’s groundbreaking 13-year history.

Viewers will be able to discuss the live stream on the Peace One Day YouTube channel with Google+, Twitter and Facebook.

In 1999 film-maker Jeremy Gilley founded the non-profit organisation to lead a process that resulted in the unanimous adoption by UN member states of the first ever annual day of global ceasefire and non-violence. With the day in place, Peace One Day works t
o establish Peace Day around the world. Since the adoption of the Peace Day resolution in 2001, activities on September 21 have enabled families to be reunited, mosquito nets and food aid to be delivered, and children to be vaccinated all over the world. Not only has Peace Day been proved as a catalyst for life-saving activity it has also become an annual platform for widescale civil society action towards a more peaceful world.
