Andrew Lloyd Webber and Gary Barlow will collaborate on a song to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee. The number will be performed at a concert celebrating the monarch's 60 years on the throne, to be held outside Buckingham Palace on June 4.

The song will be created based on interviews that Barlow conducts around the world to discover what the Queen means to people.

Webber will soon have three musicals running on Broadway: The Phantom of the Opera, Evita, and Jesus Christ Superstar. Among his many other shows are Sunset Boulevard, Aspects of Love, and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

Barlow is a performer/songwriter who has written numbers for such artists as Delta Goodrem, Donny Osmond, and Charlotte Church. He may be best known for his work with the group Take That and for his appearances on the U.K. version of The X Factor.
