Sting isn’t just singing to save the rainforests – he’s also joining in to help save the earth. Before performing at the Rainforest Benefit Concert in May, this month the singer is participating in Earth Day 2010 Climate Rally.
This year’s Earth Day takes place April 25 with the 40th anniversary celebration going down right where things first got started four decades ago, at The National Mall in Washington D.C. The event will include live music, speeches and eco-village exhibits.
