Veteran singer Sir Cliff Richard, "X Factor" star Joe McElderry and Welsh singer Katherine Jenkins will perform for the royal family during the "Festival of Remembrance" 2011 in London, on Saturday night.

The star-studded event, held to commemorate Britain's war heroes will also include a choir consisting of military wives, whose partners are serving in Afghanistan, from the Royal Marines Base Chivenor in north Devon. The women, led by choirmaster Gareth Malone, who formed the group for his BBC Two television series "The Choir", plan to sing "Wherever You Are".

The annual festival, which will be televised, is to be held at the Royal Albert Hall and comes a day before the Queen, Prime Minister David Cameron and other national figures gather at the Cenotaph in Whitehall for the Remembrance Sunday ceremony.

The other royal guests at the event will include the Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke of York, the Princess Royal and her husband Vice Admiral Sir Timothy Laurence and the Earl and Countess of Wessex.

At the Royal Albert Hall, there will be a matinee (2 p.m.) show and an evening performance. However, only the Royal family will attend the evening performance.

The evening show will be hosted by BBC broadcaster Huw Edwards and the program will be broadcast on BBC One Television from 9.15 p.m. to 10. 50 p.m.
