London (ANI): Singers Elton John and Lady Gaga are set to team up with Sting at an upcoming Rainforest Fund benefit. The three and Dame Shirley Bassey will perform together at Carnegie Hall in New York on May 13. The event will mark the 21st birthday of the charitable organisation, which Sting, 58, and his producer/actress wife Trudie Styler founded.
Styler, 56, told Billboard.com, that she"s responsible for persuading Lady GaGa to perform. “She"s such a great young woman. It"s a winning combination – we"re going to have a riotous time up there," the Daily Express quoted her as saying.
“Sting, Elton and GaGa will play together, and the boys will be performing with Dame Shirley, doing a great rendition of Hey Big Spender," she added.
