I don’t know if you’ve noticed this but Solange Knowles is not afraid to speak her mind. And one of the best places to speak your mind, is in your art. And that’s what Solange did last night at a surprise performance for HBO’s “Bessie’s 81 Theatre Tour” in Los Angeles.
In addition to performing some songs fans know and love, Solange also debuted a new song called “Rise,” to honor Baltimore and Ferguson.
Before performing the new number, Knowles announced that it would likely appear on her upcoming album.
“We’re gonna attempt to play a song for the first time that may or may not be on the record, but it probably will be. I wrote this one for Ferguson, for Baltimore, and it’s called ‘Rise.'”
