The Difference

Two new performers are scheduled to appear at "A Decade of Difference: A Concert Celebrating 10 Years of the William J. Clinton Foundation," which will  celebrate President Bill Clinton's charitable work. Lady Gaga, Usher, The Edge, and Bono will be on stage for the Hollywood Bowl event, and Yahoo! has just confirmed that they will also be joined by Kenny Chesney, Somali Canadian star K'naan and Colombian pop star Juanes.

Perhaps there will be a backstage reunion for Kenny Chesney, Usher, and Lady Gaga, who all recently performed at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas.  "A Decade of Difference" will be streamed live only on Yahoo! on October 15, starting at 7 p.m. PT. Premium tickets are also available.

"A Decade of Difference"" will recognize both Clinton's birthday and the achievements of the William J. Clinton Foundation.

"I am deeply grateful that the artists associated with the concert are giving their time and talent to raise awareness about the work of my foundation," said President Bill Clinton.  "In the past decade, commitments to my Clinton Global Initiative have improved the lives of more than 300 million people around the world. We've lowered the cost of AIDS and HIV treatment, combated climate change, strengthened economies, increased access to education and healthcare, and provided financing and mentoring for small businesses. This celebration marks ten years of these efforts and demonstrates how much we can do to make a difference in the years ahead."

The William J. Clinton Foundation has helped nearly 4 million people receive lifesaving HIV/AIDS treatment; 12,000 U.S. schools build healthier learning environments; 26,000 small-business owners and smallholder farmers improve their livelihoods and communities; and reduce 2.2 million tons of greenhouse gases in major cities.
