Jennifer Hudson calls for change at March for Our Lives concert
More than half a million people took to the streets of Washington D.C. calling for legislation to address the gun violence issue in the country.
More than 800 other marches were held across the U.S., including Los Angeles and New York.
The march was planned by students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where 17 teenagers were killed in a devastating school shooting in Florida on 14 February (18).
Students including Jaclyn Corin, Cameron Kasky, David Hogg, Emma Gonzalez and Alex Wind also joined Hudson on stage towards the end of her performance.
Other performers included Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, Ariana Grande, Common, Andra Day and Vic Mensa.“This is a powerful event, a powerful moment at time, and I believe that this won’t stop here,” Mensa told CNN.
“That this will continue and go where it needs to go."
The We Could Be Free rapper told reporters that the march was just the beginning.
