Watch Vic Mensa Perform “We Could Be Free” At March For Our Lives Protest
Chicago’s own Vic Mensa performed his The Autobiography standout cut, “We Could Be Free,” amongst protesters at March For Our Lives.
The March For Our Lives rally in Washington, D.C. was an inspiring, heartwarming, invigorating moment in American history. The nation was put on extreme notice, while its leader and Swindler-in-Chief Donald Trump was in Florida golfing, that “Enough is Enough” and we aren’t going to take this anymore.
With stirring speeches from the Parkland school shooting survivors, 11-year-old Naomi Wadler and others — this event was organized with the sole purpose to put the NRA, the American government and its players in a tough jam: change the rules on gun control or we, the people, will vote you out.
In addition to the words, there was the melodies, which came from the likes of Common, Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Vic Mensa. The Chicago MC and Roc Nation artist was front-and-center in his attempt at bringing light to the people as he performed “We Could Be Free” to the masses in Washington, D.C. and the millions watching around the world.
Now that the protest has dispersed and people are talking, planning next moves and getting ready for the next round in the fight — we ask that you continue to support these movements that are meant to rock the foundations they were built on and call for an end to gun violence and mass shootings. There are around 800 sister marches that will happen around the country in support of the movement.
