Actor/Singer Jamie Foxx will host the forthcoming Michael Jackson Tribute Concert in Wales.

Foxx, 43, who previously presented an homage to the Jackson at the BET Awards in 2009, will host the show at The Millennium Stadium in Wales on October 8.

Artists including Christina Aguilera, Smokey Robinson, Cee Lo Green and Leona Lewis will perform at the event – which will be broadcast around the world – and guests will include his mother Katherine, although it has not been officially associated with his estate.

Each performer will sing a song from Michael’s back catalog.

Speaking about the event, Katherine said: “It is with great gratitude for me to give my complete blessing and full support to what I consider to be the one and only Official Michael Jackson Tribute Concert. I will be there along with as many members of my family that are available. I am positive that this event will be an event great enough in scale, talent and imagination to form a worthy celebration of Michael’s life.”
