In honor of Freddie Gray, Prince will host a special concert in Baltimore on Mother’s Day, the Huffington Post reports. The “Rally 4 Peace” will take place at the Royal Farms Arena and will have surprise appearances from special guests. Attendees are asked to wear something gray.
There was word last week that Prince has also recorded a new song addressing the police brutality and injustices that black men have been enduring during the past few years. It hasn’t been revealed if the song will be debuted at the concert.
Gray, 25, died after suffering spinal injuries at the hands of Baltimore City police officers during an Apr. 12th arrest. Baltimore state attorney Marilyn Mosby had all six officers who were involved arrested and charged. Charges varied for the officers but included second degree murder, manslaughter, misconduct in office and false imprisonment.
