PARIS (CNN) -- Amnesty International recently marked 50 years since the Universal Declaration of Human Rights with a benefit concert attended by some of the biggest names in the music business.

Held at Bercy Stadium in Paris, audiences were treated to sounds from acts like Bruce Springsteen, Led Zeppelin, Peter Gabriel, Alanis Morissette, and Tracy Chapman.

Gabriel told a media gathering that after 50 years, there's still work to be done on the human rights front.

"It's very clear that there's stil a lot for be fought for, still a lot of influence that ordinary people can have over what's happening in other countries," Gabriel said.

Morissette said she jumped at the opportunity to be a part of the event.

"Anything on behalf of human rights that has compassion for the human condition, I want to be involved with," Morissette says. "It reaches me on a very spiritual level."
