New York, NY, United States (Celebrity News Service) - Though Taylor Swift is busy on her own sold-out tour, the 21-year-old country star just can't say no to a good cause. She's hitting the stage with the Black Eyed Peas in New York's Central Park on Thursday night.

Swift will join the Peas for their Concert 4 NYC benefitting the Robin Hood Foundation, which helps battle poverty in New York City. The show is expected to have over 60,000 fans in attendance.

"We are thrilled to have Taylor on board to benefit two very important causes," Fergie said in a statement. "Not only will she will be an amazing addition to our lineup, she is an incredible inspiration to people of all ages and her music gives a voice to those who feel left behind."

Other performers set to appear include Debbie Harry, LL Cool J and Natasha Bedingfield, while Whoopi Goldberg and Zach Braff are among the stars also scheduled to make appearances.

The concert is free but tickets are required and are sold out.
