John Legend performed a new song called “Preach” during the Families Belong Together rally in Los Angeles on Saturday (June 30).
Before launching into the passionate new tune, Legend gave an inspirational speech encouraging people to take action and do something about immigrant parents being separated from their children at the U.S. borders. Watch below.
“You can’t just talk about it or tweet about it. You’ve got to do something,” Legend told the crowd of protesters.
The L.A. event also included voices of immigrants and refugees, and emphasized that families belong together. Organizers encouraged attendees to wear white to symbolize unity.
Legend is one of many celebrities attending Families Belong Together marches around the country. Musical artists like Selena Gomez, Alicia Keys, and Lin-Manual Miranda have also been speaking out against the current administration’s immigration policies.
