Madonna and Sting to duet at dazzling Live 8 finale

Pop superstar Madonna and Sting will reportedly provide a dazzling finale to the star-studded Live 8 charity concert – by performing an historic cover of John Lennon’s poignant classic Imagine.
The Material Girl reportedly consulted her Rabbi advisor Michael Berg before agreeing to take part in the ground-breaking gig, which aims to persuade politicians to cancel Third World debt, double the aid budget and rewrite global trade laws so developing countries can protect their economies.
And she has now agreed to perform the moving duet with the former Police star, who played at the original 1985 Live Aid, to ensure the concert lives up to its billing as the biggest gig of the decade, reports British newspaper The Sun.
An insider says, “They have had a discussion about performing a cover version. Madonna sang it on her Re-Invention Tour.”
The pair will also perform solo pieces at the event in London’s Hyde Park on 2 July (05).
