Katy Perry, Blake Lively Join Beyoncé and Gucci to Empower Women

04/17/2013 at 09:00 AM ET

Halle Berry, Blake Lively and Katy Perry are just three of the female powerhouses to lend their voice to Gucci’s A-list Chime For Change campaign, collaborating with existing ambassadors Beyoncé Knowles, Salma Hayek and Frida Giannini (Gucci’s Creative Director).

The fundraising movement urges women to unite on global issues like education, health and justice.

“If I feel strongly about something, the whole world will know within seconds,” Perry, 28, boasts of her outreach.

In the PSA, Beyoncé shares that she gives baby daughter Blue Ivy pep talks about her future, even encouraging her to run for the highest office one day.

“I know she has no idea why I’m saying that — she’s one year old and I’m like: ‘You know you could be President!’”

Bey will headline a global concert event for the cause on June 1 at London’s Twickenham stadium. The lineup includes Ellie Goulding, Florence + the Machine, John Legend Rita Ora, Timbaland and more.
