Prince's Rally 4 Peace Draws Thousands, Tidal Streams Show for Free
By Zach Seemayer
Thousands of music fans gathered together in Baltimore's Royal Farms Arena on Sunday for Prince's highly anticipated Rally 4 Peace concert, where the star performed an array of his biggest hits and his most recent single, "Baltimore."
At the concert, many fans wore grey -- a symbolic gesture of equality and brotherhood that Prince had requested from concertgoers days before the rally. While there's been quite a bit of civil unrest in Baltimore, the mood of this event was energetic and peaceful, the Associated Press reports.
Prince also debuted "Baltimore," which the singer has been teasing and promoting since last week. The song was written in reaction to Gray's death, and to recent social injustices around the country.
Aside from the rally serving as a way to help rebuild Baltimore -- as Prince said that some of the proceeds generated from the $20-$500 tickets would be donated to local charity organizations -- the concert was also a chance for Jay Z's embattled streaming service Tidal to make some waves.
