Nick Grimshaw and Reggie Yates will host a memorial concert for Stephen Lawrence.

The concert will take place in London's O2 Arena on September 29th and will feature artists including Emile Sande, Ed Sheeran, Plan B, Tinie Tempah, Jessie J, Rizzle Kicks, Rita Ora and Labrinth.

Lawrence was murdered in a racially-motivated attack 20 years ago and the money raised from the concert will go to The Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust which aims to champion youth and social empowerment.

Both hosts are honoured to be involved in the event with Grimshaw saying, "I'm really honoured to have been asked to be involved in such a worthwhile event and really looking forward to the evening."

Yates commented, "To be involved in this event is a real honour to mark the amazing work that Doreen Lawrence and the charity have been doing in Stephen's name."
