D’Angelo is back and he’s back with a message.
A few weeks ago, we reported D’Angelo released a new album Black Messiah, after a lengthy 14 year hiatus. Now, the singer is promoting this new album around the country. His latest promotion was a powerful appearance on Saturday Night Live.
During his second performance of the night, D’Angelo wore a hoodie to salute Trayvon Martin while his band, the Vanguard, wore shirts with the words “I Can’t Breathe,” a tribute to Eric Garner.
In addition to the shirts, a chalk outline of a human body was drawn on the floor, referencing Michael Brown, Eric Garner and sadly so many more. D’Angelo’s performance was a beautiful tribute to the Black Lives Matter movement.
We’re proud of D’Angelo and congratulations to him on a successful performance.
