The March for Our Lives rally Saturday took place Saturday in Washington, DC, with numerous marches taking place in cities throughout the world as people support America’s students as they stand up against gun violence in schools.
At the DC event, numerous performers took to the stage in support of the rally, including Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, Ariana Grande, Jennifer Hudson and many more.
Andra Day opened the show with a performance of her hit “Rise Up”, joined by members of the Cardinal Shehan School Choir. She then welcomed Common to the stage, and they sang their Oscar-nominated song “Stand Up for Something”.
Demi Lovato performed her hit “Skyscraper”, thanking the crowd and expressing her excitement at “sharing our voices so we can be heard together.”
Lin-Manuel Miranda and Ben Platt performed their new charity single “Found/Tonight”, a mash-up of the “You Will Be Found” from Platt’s Broadway musical “Dear Evan Hansen” and “The Story of Tonight” from Miranda’s “Hamilton”; proceeds from the single are being donated to March for Our Lives.
Vic Mensa took to the stage to perform his song “We Could Be Free”.
Ariana Grande dedicated her heartfelt version of “Be Alright” to “those brilliant students here today that are leading this march and for everybody participating today. Thank you so much for fighting for change and for love and safety and for our future.”
Jennifer Hudson lent her powerful pipes to arguably the most powerful protest song ever written, Bob Dylan’s iconic “The Times They Are A Changin'”.
Miley Cyrus performed her hit “The Climb”; earlier in the day, she took to Twitter to say that the song’s “lyrics mean more to me now than ever. I won’t ever give up & neither will the millions that march with us today!”
