Queen + Paul Rodgers: Live In Ukraine 2008. YouTube Special. Raising funds for Ukraine Relief. Click on the video and then hit the donate button!
In September 2008 Queen + Paul Rodgers answered a call from Ukraine’s Elena Pinchuk AnitiAids Foundation to reach out to the youth of the country with the message “Don’t Let AIDS Ruin Your Life” by playing a free Life Must Go On Aids awareness concert performed in Ukraine’s second largest city Kharkiv’s historic Freedom Square to a live audience of over 350,000. More than 10 million watched the show live on television.
The band recall that event as “an unforgettable experience…one of those rare things in life you know you will never forget. A meeting in music, but also a coming together to fight a common affliction…”
In support of relief efforts in Ukraine’s challenges against a new affliction, Queen is returning to that historic concert with a YouTube special screening aimed at drawing donations for international relief efforts. “Queen + Paul Rodgers Live In Ukraine” plays on YouTube Saturday, March 19th at 10A PDT / 1P EDT / 5P GMT. Please make your donations to: UNHCR – The UN Refugee Agency.
