    On Sunday May 10, American music legend Prince will be holding a concert to benefit Baltimore-based youth charities, and tickets go on sale Wednesday at 5 pm.

    “In a spirit of healing, the event is meant to be a catalyst for pause and reflection following the outpouring of violence that has gripped Baltimore and areas throughout the US.  As a symbolic message of our shared humanity and love for one another, attendees are invited to wear something gray in tribute to all those recently lost in the violence,” the event press release stated.

    Prince has been a vocal supporter of the movement to end police brutality, bringing up Black Lives Matter while presenting the Album of the Year award at the Grammys in February.  

    “Albums still matter. Like books and black lives, albums still matter,” Prince asserted during his speech.

    Prince has recorded a new song entitled “Baltimore” which is said to be about the protests following the death of Freddie Gray, and “superstar guests” are expected to be in attendance.
