poGoing global takes on special meaning at the upcoming Turkish Airlines Euroleague Final Four 2011 Barcelona with the announcement of a new, star-studded charity concert to benefit UNICEF's educational efforts in Africa!

Euroleague Basketball, Turkish Airlines and Los 40 Principales radio are joining forces to put great music to work for a worthy cause, the students across Africa whom UNICEF is lifting up every day with broad-based educational assistance.

Some of the brightest lights of Spain's dynamic music scene will entertain up to 7,000 lucky fans on Saturday night of Final Four weekend, with all the profits from ticket sales going directly to UNICEF.

In sub-Saharan Africa, one out of every three children does not have access to primary education, putting their futures at risk. UNICEF's Schools for Africa initiative builds full-service educational facilities for children where they have access to nourishing meals, potable water and health services for a secure and protected environment in which they can enjoy learning.

The Euroleague for Africa 40 Pop Concert, presented by Turkish Airlines, will feature more than a dozen of Spain's top young musical artists, including El Pescao, Carlos Jean, Robert Ramirez, Pablo Alboran, Macaco, Eliza Doolitle, Pol.314, Edurne, The Monomes, Melocos and more!

The concert will take place at the Olympic Esplanade in Barcelona, right next door to Palau Sant Jordi, where the best Turkish Airlines Euroleague teams will battle on Friday and Sunday to become this season's continental champion.

The Turkish Airlines Euroleague Final Four 2011 Barcelona runs from Friday, May 6 to Sunday, May 8. The Euroleague for Africa 40 Pop Concert, presented by Turkish Airlines, will be held on Saturday night, May 7.
