Craig David - Craig David Signs Up For Michael Jackson Tribute

Craig David is to perform at a Michael Jackson tribute concert.

The 'Seven Days' hitmaker has confirmed he will be among musicians who will commemorate the late 'Bad' singer's life at the 'Michael Forever Tribute Concert' on October 8, held at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.

Writing on his Facebook page, he said: "I am honoured to announce I will be performing alongside some of the world's greatest artists at the Michael Jackson tribute concert."

The full line-up is set to be announced over the coming weeks, and all proceeds from the show will be donated to charities in the UK and US.

Shortly after his death from acute Propofol intoxication in June 2009, Craig spoke about how 'Billy Jean' singer Michael had been an early influence on him.

He said: "He inspired me growing up and millions of other people we already know. I can only reminisce over the great music that he made because otherwise you just dwell on the fact that he's passed away.

"I was incredibly shocked by the whole thing. In my lifetime I probably won't have someone like him who's a true superstar."
