Stars come out in memory of Stephen

Rita Ora, Beverley Knight and Jessie J led a star-studded concert held in memory of murdered teenager Stephen Lawrence.

They were joined by Emeli Sande, Ellie Goulding and Ed Sheeran for a tribute performance 20 years after the 18-year-old was killed in a racist attack as he waited for a bus in Eltham, south-east London.

Unity - A Concert for Stephen Lawrence was also due to feature performances from Rizzle Kicks and Jamie Cullum.

Stephen's mother Doreen, who accepted a peerage this year for her tireless campaigning, said her son would be "smiling down" on the show this evening.

"He would have loved this because he really loved music," she said.

"I would like Stephen to be remembered as a young man who had a future.

"He was well loved, and had he been given the chance to survive maybe he would have been the one to bridge the gap between black and white because he didn't distinguish between black or white. He saw people as people."

Tonight's concert was designed to unite communities and draw people of all backgrounds together through music.

It saw artists select tracks chosen for their social message.

Funds from the show will go to The Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust which aims to create brighter futures for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.

The concert was held at the O2 Arena in London.
