Demi, Miley, Ari And More Perform At March For Our Lives
This weekend’s March For Our Lives in Washington, DC brought out a lot of celebrity support, with artists like Demi Lovato, Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande, Jennifer Hudson and more performing for the hundreds of thousands that gathered to protest for better gun control laws.
Demi performed her tune “Skyscraper,” while Miley shared an emotional rendition of “The Climb,” noting “this song has never felt more special.” Ari performed “Be Alright,” while Lin-Manuel Miranda and Ben Platt, performed their mashup “Found Tonight,” and Andra Day performed “Rise Up,” and “Stand Up For Something,” with Common
Jennifer Hudson, who lost her mother, sister and nephew to gun violence, ended the day with a cover of Bob Dylan’s “Times They Are A Changin'.” In an interview with CNN she noted, “It is almost impossible to understand what the victims, the families, are going through, what they feel, or even to be able to relate to a situation like this unless you’ve been in it.” She added, “So for people who are watching . . . know that it can be anybody. It can happen to anybody. To me, the saddest thing is no one ever reacts until it happens to them, and then it’s too late.”
Taylor Swift Supports March For Our Lives
Taylor Swift is known for not getting political. In fact, she’s been criticized for it in the past. But that all changed this weekend thanks to the March For Our Lives.
Taylor revealed on Instagram that she made a donation to support the students marching in Washington DC, writing, “No one should have to go to school in fear of gun violence. Or to a nightclub. Or to a concert. Or to a movie theater. Or to their place of worship.”
She adds, “I’m so moved by the Parkland High School students, faculty, by all families and friends of victims who have spoken out, trying to prevent this from happening again.”
Pink Postpones Show Due To Virus
Pink is under the weather and unfortunately it’s affecting her “Beatiful Trauma” tour. The singer was forced to postpone her show in Montreal, and then took to social media to announce that her show in Detroit last night also had to be postponed.
“I've just seen the doctor here again in Montreal. I'm not going to be well enough to do the show tomorrow night in Detroit," she wrote regarding her Sunday night concert at Little Caesars Arena. "I want to give you all the full show and not be hacking all the way through it and have to cut songs because of my voice."
She added, “I understand how much trouble you go to to be at my shows, what it all entails, the planning, the schedules, etc. I am very very sorry, and I'm very grateful for your understanding."
Pink’s next scheduled show is set for tomorrow in Louisville, Kentucky.
