“During tough times, you can always count on great musicians to come together to focus on what really matters,” Nile Rodgers said in a statement.
“At this moment, nothing is more important than showing the people affected by the conflict in Ukraine that we stand by them, that we are one family. So I’m excited to join Ed Sheeran, Camila Cabello and all the wonderful artists who are coming together to make this a success.
“As we say in our song Everybody Dance, ‘Music never lets you down.’
