According to the New York Daily News, Charlotte police canceled a concert that Fantasia had planned for yesterday afternoon. She announced the concert via social media and said that it would also feature performances by Anthony Hamilton, John P. Kee and Dennis Reed.
Fantasia later took to social media to announce that Charlotte police had nixed the event because of Sunday’s Carolina Panthers game scheduled to take place a mile away from the proposed concert site.
“It wasn’t just about music. I don’t know if people were coming out thinking they were going to hear my songs, but what they were really going to hear was worship. They were going to hear worship and prayer and poetry reading and strong men coming together to see if we can pull in our men. Not just only black, not just only white. People were out protesting today, it wasn’t just white people. It was black people, it was Latino people.”
