[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Janet Jackson[/lastfm] has won 6 Grammy’s, sold over 100 millions records world-wide and now, will be the first female pop star to perform under the iconic glass Pyramid at the Louvre Museum in Paris, France.
Jackson’s performance on June 14, 2011 will be in conjunction with the museum’s bi-annual fundraising event titled “Liasons au Louvre”. Funds from the event will help restore a Louis XV drawing room, which will be featured in the Louvre’s 18th-century decorative arts gallery, re-opening in 2013.
“The Louvre and its stunning glass Pyramid are equaled only by the priceless treasures that are housed within its impressive walls. It is an honor to be asked to participate in such an incredible evening at this historic location. “Liaisons au Louvre” will be an unequaled event, raising much needed funds for this institution and the preservation of art that moves the soul,” said Janet.
