Hollywood actor Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett-Smith will co-host the 16th annual
Nobel Peace Prize Concert that will be held on December 11 in Oslo, Norway.
The show will feature performances by Amadou & Mariam, a blues and jazz duet from Mali, singer Luis Fonsi from Puerto Rican, as well as American Soul diva Donna Summer and Country singer Toby Keith, and hip hop producer and rapper Wyclef Jean.
“The opportunity to recognize the laureate’s contributions to the world peace movement will be an awe-inspiring experience,” the Smiths said in a statement. “We are both humbled and honored to take part in the Nobel Peace Prize Concert this year.”
According to the organizers the winner of the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize will be announced in Oslo on October 9. The award is always handed out on December 10, on the date of the anniversary of prize founder Alfred Nobel’s death in 1896.
