*Alicia Keys, Pharrell Williams, John Legend, Miguel and more will take part in a three-hour A&E concert special aimed to confront issues of racial inequality, social injustice and violence in America.
“Shining a Light: A Concert for Progress on Race in America” and “Shining a Light: Conversations on Race in America” will combine concert footage with town hall meetings recorded in the Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, S.C., in Ferguson, Mo., and in Baltimore, where protests erupted back in April after Freddy Gray died under unusual circumstance while in police custody.
Moments from the show include a performance from Keys with her rendition of Donny Hathaway’s “Someday We’ll All Be Free.” Check it out in the video below.
The concert event is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m.
Meanwhile, a dispute over underwear between Derek Jeter and Frigo has turned 50 Cent into a Mets fan. Jeter is being sued by the company for nearly $5 million in Sweden for backing out on his promotional duties for the brand, after the Swedish underwear named 50 Cent as its brand ambassador.
According to the lawsuit obtained by TMZ, Jeter left the company because he thought the rapper was making the image too “urban.”
50 Cent responded to the report on Instagram Wednesday, saying:
“Wow, guess I’m not a Yankees fan anymore,” the New York emcee writes for the caption of a picture of Jeter in his Yankees uniform. “LETS GO METS? Man you can’t trust nobody these day.smh #EFFENVODKA #FRIGO #SMSAUDIO.”
Adam Handelsman, who launched Frigo via his SpecOps Communications firm, told Page Six, “I really felt for Mathias (CEO Mathias Ingvarsson). This guy worked so hard and invested millions . . . To say it’s an extremely difficult position to be in — it’s go-time on a massive campaign to launch an underwear brand and the principal celebrity owner backs out at the last-minute — is an understatement.”
