Mary J. Blige and James Blunt will headline the Nobel Peace Prize concert on December 11, 2013 at the Spektrum Arena in Oslo, Norway. The event will be hosted by actress Claire Danes and will also feature 15-year old Swedish singer Zara Larsson and Norwegian hip-hop duo Envy, with additional performers to be announced. This year the prize will be awarded to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) for their work overseeing the disarmament efforts in Syria. The Nobel Peace Prize is given each year to an organization or individual whose work "exemplifies a spirit of hope and leadership that will help promote peace in the world." Meanwhile Blige, a nine-time Grammy Award-winner, just released her first holiday album A Mary Christmas on Verve Records. She has partnered with HSN to perform an exclusive holiday concert on the network taking place on November 17 at 6pm ET. Visit her website to check out a medley of songs from the new album here.
