Beyonce and Jacqui at 46664Go behind the scenes and meet the stars of the 46664 concert.

The list of artists who took part in the concert staggering. Beyonce, Roger Taylor and Brian May, Paul Oakenfold, Baaba Maal, Youssou N'Dour, Peter Gabriel, Annie Lennox, Dave Stewart, Bono and the Edge, Jimmy Cliff, the Corrs, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Ms Dynamite and Anastacia; the names seem endless.

There are also films by Sir Ian "Gandalf" McKellen, Jesse Jackson, Robert de Niro and Dave Stewart, urging people to donate their time and money to finding a cure for HIV/Aids, and to support the sufferers of the disease.

Jacqui Joseph, the Community Channel's lovely Action! presenter, was on hand in South Africa to interview some of the biggest names in the music industry for the Community Channel. See Jacqui's photos from the event.

Learn why the artists took part, and why they think the African Aids crisis is something that the whole world must fight.

46664: the Message features interviews with Beyonce, Bono, Annie Lennox Roger Taylor, Bob Geldof, Paul Oakenfold, Ms Dynamite, Dave Stewart, Anastacia, Peter Gabriel and more.

Nelson Mandela launched the 46664 campaign - named after his prison number - to mobilise governments to declare Aids an emergency and to provide anti-retroviral drugs.

46664 is aiming to raise millions of pounds for Aids research. And to give you a bit more incentive to donate, Queen are making their back catalogue available on the internet, with royalties going to Aids research.
