Here’s what Jennifer had to say about the Nobel Peace Prize Concert
We have been given the incredible privilege of performing at this year’s Nobel Peace Prize Concert, honoring Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Leymah Gbowee and Tawakkul Karman for what the Norwegian Nobel Committee calls “their non-violent struggle for the safety of women and for women’s rights to full participation in peace-buildingwork.” The concert takes place on December 11th in Oslo, Norway; our fellow performers include Janelle Monae, Jill Scott, David Gray, and Matthew Morrison from Glee.
Congratulations to Jennifer and Kristian on their generous efforts to make the world a better place.
