Barlow Organises Star-studded Charity Concert

TAKE THAT star GARY BARLOW has signed up CHRIS MARTIN and LEONA LEWIS to headline a star-studded charity concert he's organising for later this year (09).
The British singer is planning a one-off gig at London's Royal Albert Hall in October (09) to raise money for Children In Need.
Barlow has managed to convince the Coldplay frontman and Bleeding Love star Lewis to sing at the event, alongside his own band Take That.
A source tells British newspaper The Sun, "Children In Need bosses have discussed a number of ideas with him but Gary thought it would be a good idea if he could put his musical skills to their best use. He knows a lot of people and is widely respected so putting together a star bill has been plain-sailing.
"Take That are going to perform and there will be a whole host of surprises throughout the evening. It's shaping up to be a very special night."
The show will be filmed and released on DVD to raise even more money for the cause.
It's not the first time Barlow has used his celebrity status to raise money for charity - the singer completed a climb up Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania alongside Girls Aloud singer Cheryl Cole earlier this year (09) to raise funds for Comic Relief.
