11/16 Butler to Co-Host Nobel Peace Prize Concert

Recommended Posts

Sarah Jessica Parker and Gerard Butler are adding to the star wattage at the Nobel Peace Prize Concert.

The actors will be the hosts of the 19th annual event, to be held Dec. 11 in Oslo, Norway. Jennifer Hudson and Seal are among the performers.

The European Union captured the prize this year.

Parker says she is honored to "promote the power of peace around the world. Butler said the European Union has shown "the world what is possible when forces unite in peace" and called the concert a "remarkable celebration of humanity."

"I’m deeply honored to have been asked to be a part of such a remarkable celebration of humanity," said Gerard Butler. "The European Union has shown the world what is possible when forces unite in peace. It’s a joy to stand alongside these magnificent artists and celebrate the EU and its contribution to world peace."
