Jennifer Hudson and Bruno Mars have been added to the incredible lineup for the upcoming Revlon Concert for the Rainforest Fund.

They join an all-star list of performers including Sting, Elton John, James Taylor, Meryl Streep, Vince Gill, Rosanne Cash, Bryn Terfel and Katharine McPhee at the concert on April 3, 2012, which will be held at the world-renowned Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage, followed by a gala dinner.

The Rainforest Fund was founded in 1989 by Sting and Trudie Styler in response to a direct request for help from a Kayapo Indian leader in Brazil who was seeking to protect his people’s land and culture. Over the past 23 years, the Rainforest Fund has worked in partnership with more than 100 local organizations in all major rainforest areas and successfully protected over 115,000 sq km of forest. In 2012 the Rainforest Fund continues supporting a range of long term projects including comprehensive policy programs, empowerment of the indigenous groups, mapping of territories, securing their rights, improving forest management, lobbying governments, creating law reform, and developing organizations, with a particular focus on climate change initiatives.
