Artistes such as Beyonce, Jay-Z, Ed Sheeran, Usher and Pharrell Williams will be headlining the Global Citizen Festival which will be held in South Africa to honour of late Nelson Mandela on his birth centenary.
The festival aims to celebrate the legacy of Mandela, South African anti-apartheid revolutionary and erstwhile President, with the aim of ending "extreme poverty" by 2030.
"Nelson Mandela's life story is a testament to the power of the human spirit and one man's ability to change the world by standing up for what he believed in.
"It is one of the great honours of my life to have spent so much time with him, and I look forward to celebrating his courageous life," Winfrey said.
