Just a night before he and wife Beyonce attended a Harlem “Justice for Trayvon Martin” rally, Jay Z honored the slain teen during his Legends of Summer tour stop at Yankee Stadium on Friday (July 19).
Jay and his co-headliner Justin Timberlake closed their show with a performance of the rapper’s “Young Forever,” dedicating it to Martin. “This is for Trayvon, so light up your cell phones, New York,” Hova yelled into the crowd, with Timberlake adding, “One more time for Trayvon, New York!”
Jay Z and Timberlake aren’t the only celebrities to have spoken out in the Martin case after the recent ruling that found Florida man George Zimmerman not guilty of the teen’s murder. Beyonce held a moment of silence for Martin during her Nashville show after the verdict was delivered. Bruce Springsteen dedicated his song “American Skin (41 Shots)” at a show in Ireland, while Stevie Wonder announced that he will no longer perform in Florida, or any other state with a Stand Your Ground law.
