On Mother’s Day there may be a lot of mothers that are cheering as they check out the Prince concert in Baltimore. He is planning to perform the untitled song and others at the Royal Farms Arena.
Prince will have his female group 3rd Eye Girl backing him up. Prince continues to show up and perform concerts out of nowhere. This is yet another venue that came together quite quickly. Many people may have thought that the Baltimore tribute song was the biggest thing that he could give to the city, but the Rally 4 Peace concert is another huge milestone.
What Prince has done is draw some attention to this with his celebrity status. With this concert Prince hopes to decrease the riots and violent protesting. He wants to have some peaceful rallies and this is his way of making a contribution to the cause.
Prince is a big deal even after all of these years. He has become someone that is recognized and respected by people in rap, pop and R&B. With more than 40 years of albums and millions of albums sold he has a big influence in the world of entertainment. That is why the concert is going to be such a big deal.
Many people were not expecting this. Prince is sort of introverted. After all these years he is finally breaking out of his shell and becoming vocal.
The riots in Baltimore, Maryland have sparked great debate and media attention. Comparable to total warfare, the streets of Baltimore have been plagued with many angry residents after the death of Freddie Gray. A series of pictures have been released that speak volumes about the cities current crisis.
Photos of complete and utter dismay show onlookers the scene on the Baltimore streets. Rioters, speaking out against police officers after the wrongful death of Freddie Gray have taken matters to the extreme. OTC Markets say that they have lined the streets terrorizing police cars and lighting them on fire. A photograph even captures a group of young black males destroying a police car. They have completed demolished the vehicle, smashing in the windows and literally tearing it apart. The picture shows the young males standing on the police car and flipping off the camera.
Other pictures show graphic images of buildings on fire, people being sprayed with mace and others throwing bricks into city buildings. The scene is downright heartbreaking. The mayor has declared a state of emergency for the city. Baltimore city schools have been canceled as authorities have deemed the city as unsafe.
Rioters believe the protests represent so much more than just the wrongful death of Freddie Gray. They believe they have been treated unfairly for many years and this is finally their chance to speak up. The unproductive and absolute animal-like behavior these people are displaying is sickening. Here’s to hoping the city is able to resolve the conflict.
