(CBS News/AP) -- Sarah Jessica Parker and Gerard Butler will be hosting the Nobel Peace Prize Concert this year in Oslo, Norway.

The concert will feature performances by Jennifer Hudson and Seal, among others.

Parker says she is honored to “promote the power of peace around the world. Butler said the European Union has shown “the world what is possible when forces unite in peace” and called the concert a “remarkable celebration of humanity.”

The European Union captured the prize this year. Past winners of the Nobel Peace Prize include Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa, former Vice President Al Gore and President Barack Obama.

The actors will be the host the 19th annual event on Dec. 11.
