Congrats to Grammy-nominated artist Janelle Monáe, as the pint-sized powerhouse has been confirmed to perform at the 18th Annual Nobel Peace Prize Concert.
Monáe will join an incredible roster of acts previously confirmed for the event including Sugarland, David Gray, Jill Scott, Matthew Morrison, Ellie Goulding, Bernhoft and the World Youth Choir.
The Nobel Peace Prize for 2011 is to be divided in equal parts between three women:
Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Leymah Gbowee of Libya and Tawakkul Karman of Yemen for their non-violent struggle for the safety of women and for women's rights to full participation in peace-building work.
The Nobel Peace Prize Concert is an annual contemporary musical tribute to the year's Nobel Peace Prize laureate. This year's Concert will be held Dec. 11 in Oslo, Norway. Go here for more info.
