American superstar Beyonce Knowles is performing a one off gig in England for an amazing $1.8 million (GBP1 million).

The Destiny's Child beauty is headlining the La Dolce Vita event on the eve of the BRITISH GRAND PRIX at 18th century STOWE HOUSE in Buckingham, southern England on 10 July (04).

The concert is to help raise money for THE CANTOR FOUNDATION - which raises money for victims of the September 11th (01) atrocities in New York.

Generous Knowles will only pocket half the fee and give $900,000 (GBP500,000) to the charity.

An event insider says, "Beyonce is so hot she can name her price. But she's glad to help raise money for such a good cause."

Tickets to the exclusive event are priced at $2,700 (GBP1,500) each and celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay will be cooking for the guests.
