The performers of the King Charles coronation concert included Katy Perry alongside Lionel Richie, British pop group Take That, Freya Ridings and Alexis Ffrench, and opera stars Bryn Terfel and Andrea Bocelli.

King Charles and Katy Perry met for the first time during an event in Mumbai, India in 2019. A year later, Perry was appointed as an ambassador for the British Asian Trust by Charles. The King said that the Fireworks singer's long-standing commitment to charitable causes was the reason why she was appointed as the ambassador. Charles' decision was criticized by some people as they said that Perry was neither Asian nor British to be appointed as the ambassador of this trust. 

During the introduction of charity, Perry referred to her friendship with King Charles and said that the former Prince of Wales was a "very kind soul." After being announced as one of the performers at King Charles III's coronation weekend Perry said that her concert would help, "shine a further light on the British Asian Trust’s Children Protection Fund."


Lionel Richie also performed at the coronation concert and even brought King Charles III and Queen Camilla to their feet. The Oscar-winning singer is also connected to King Charles III. Richie was appointed by the King as the first global ambassador for The Prince’s Trust – a charity founded by the latter in 1976.
