Jamie Foxx to host Michael Jackson Concert

London: Hollywood actor Jamie Foxx is all set to host the forthcoming Michael Jackson Tribute Concert in Cardiff, Wales.

The 43-year-old, who previously presented a homage to the late `Thriller` singer at the BET Awards in 2009, will host the show at The Millennium Stadium in Wales on October 8, reported Contactmusic.

Artists including Christina Aguilera, Smokey Robinson, Cee Lo Green and Leona Lewis will perform at the event - which will be broadcast around the world - and guests will include Jackson mother Katherine.

Each performer will sing a song from Michael`s back catalogue.

"It is with great gratitude for me to give my complete blessing and full support to what I consider to be the one and only Official Michael Jackson Tribute Concert," Katherine said.

"I will be there along with as many members of my family that are available. I am positive that this event will be an event great enough in scale, talent and imagination to form a worthy celebration of Michael`s life," she added.
