Queen and Paul Rodgers, Annie Lennox and Simple Minds are among the international acts performing at a charity concert to celebrate Nelson Mandela's 90th birthday.

Billed as the "46664 Concert Honouring Nelson Mandela at 90," the show takes place June 27 in Hyde Park, London. Proceeds from the three-hour concert will go to the anti-apartheid icon's 46664 initiative to fight HIV/AIDS in Africa.

Other international performers include Leona Lewis, Dame Shirley Bassey, Razorlight, Sugababes, Andrea and Sharon Corr, Eddy Grant, and Jamelia, along with 46664 Ambassadors, Italy's Zucchero and Spain's Amaral.

Johnny Clegg, Sipho Mabuse, multi-South African Music Awards winner Loyiso, and Kurt Darren are among the African acts participating. They will join other African artists such as the Soweto Gospel Choir, AIDS orphan choir the Children of Agape (subject of award-winning feature film "We Are Together"), Papa Wemba, and Sudanese "war child" rapper Emmanuel Jal.

Among the politicians and celebrities scheduled to join the celebrations are former U.S. president Bill Clinton, U.K. prime minister Gordon Brown, Hollywood actors Will Smith, Robert de Niro and Forest Whitaker, as well as U.S. talk-show host, Oprah Winfrey, and British Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton.

Both Queen and Lennox performed during the launch of 46664 -- named after Mandela's prison number at Robben Island -- held in the South African city of Cape Town in November 2003.

In a statement, Mr Mandela said: "You all know that I am supposed to be retired but my friends and the charitable organisations that bear my name want to use my 90th birthday year to raise funds to continue our work. And so, of course, I want to help them. So, we have a bargain -- I am going to London and they will host a concert in Hyde Park, which will raise awareness of our continuing work and much needed funds."

The 46664 music event hopes to emulate the success of the June 1988 Nelson Mandela 70th Birthday Tribute, which was held at London's Wembley Stadium.
