Beyonce Knowles will stage a day-long concert for the Ethiopian millennium to be celebrated on September 12 in Addis Ababa. Beyonce, who won the Grammy Award in 2001 and 2002, has been invited by Sheraton Addis, a luxury hotel in the Ethiopian capital.

Sheraton Addis will pay Beyonce one million dollars and pay for the transportation of her band and equipment, APA learnt here on Monday. The 26-year-old singer is expected to be accompanied by other singers from the United States whose identity has not yet been made public.

Sources told APA that Michael Jackson will also attend the Ethiopian millennium as a special guest together with other VIPs.

The Ethiopian millennium has been recognized by the African Union and United Nations as an African and worldwide celebration.

Over 400,000 Ethiopians from the diaspora, tourists and other invited guests are expected to come to Ethiopia for the millennium celebrations.

The Ethiopian calendar is eight years behind that used by most of the world. It is still 1999 in Ethiopia.
