Singers Anne Marie and Paloma Faith are the latest acts confirmed for the Concert For Ukraine.

Top names such as Ed Sheeran and Camilla Cabello have already been announced for the two-hour show, which will be shown on STV on Tuesday.

Held in Birmingham’s Resorts World Arena the concert will be a “unique event” with the aim of “spreading a message of hope and support”.

Funds will also be raised for the ongoing DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.

Nile Rodgers & Chic, Emeli Sandé, Becky Hill, Manic Street Preachers and Snow Patrol will also be among the acts performing on the night.

It will be hosted by JLS star Marvin Humes and former Spice Girl Emma Bunton.

All sponsorship and advertising revenue generated from the broadcast of the event, which is expected to raise over £3m, will also be donated to the DEC appeal.

The broadcast will combine emotive music performances with short films recognising the ongoing relief efforts and the plight faced by people affected by the conflict in Ukraine.

Viewers will be able to donate money to the cause throughout the evening.

Speaking ahead of the show Havana and Senorita singer Camila Cabello said: “My heart is breaking for the people of Ukraine. As refugees from Ukraine join millions of other displaced people around the globe, we all have a responsibility.

“One of the biggest needs is to get funds to organisations who can serve these communities directly, so we’re focusing our efforts on doing that as quickly as we can.”

And Scottish singer Emeli Sandé said, “I will be singing to try to help every human being forced to flee their home and in solidarity with those being racially discriminated against even within this humanitarian crisis.

Nobody should be refused access to relief, aid and the right to cross the border to safety, and I’m pleased for the chance to support the DEC’s appeal to help all people whose lives have been affected by the conflict.”
