R+B star Alicia Keys will enter the history books by performing at the first concert ever to be staged at the Great Wall of China.

Keys has agreed to sing at the invitation-only WALL OF HOPE 2004 charity show on 25 September (04) to raise funds for the CHINA CHILDREN AND TEENAGERS' FUND.

The musical extravaganza - for a maximum crowd of 10,000 people at the JU YONG GUAN gate in Beijing - will be filmed for global TV audiences by Live Aid producer HAL UPLINGER.

The concert is one in a series to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Great Wall restoration project.

More top names are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
