Winehouse to Perform for Nelson Mandela’s 90th

By: Celebuzz / May 30, 2008

Scheduled to take place in London’s Hyde Park on June 27, the charity concert being held to celebrate the 90th birthday of former South African president Nelson Mandela has officially added Amy Winehouse to its star-studded lineup.

Already on the bill are Annie Lennox, Leona Lewis, Shirley Bassey, Razorlight and Queen, with proceeds for the event planned to go toward HIV and AIDS awareness campaign 46664. (Check the group’s recent PSA below.) Will Smith will be playing host for the evening, with such notables as Oprah Winfrey, Robert De Niro and Bill Clinton expected to attend.

Amy would probably even shock herself if she actually managed to make it to the gig, on time and in one piece…and not somehow lighting herself on fire.

Speaking of which, how tight is her alibi for when this was going down? Junkies and cigarettes can be a deadly combination.
