    Say "I Do" to Grenada

    Prince has taken the stage in Baltimore before thousands of fans who were dressed in gray in tribute to a man whose death in police custody prompted riots and drew international attention.

    The pop star announced Sunday's "Rally 4 Peace" concert at the Royal Farms Arena Baltimore after weeks of protests over the death of Freddie Gray. Producers say a portion of the concert's proceeds will benefit youth charities in Baltimore.

    During the show, Prince debuted a song he wrote for the city in the wake Gray's death.

    The song, which is entitled "Baltimore," addresses the "socio-political issues around the country in the wake of a slew of killings of young black men,” a spokeswoman for the singer previously said.

    "For those who have lost loved ones, we're here for you tonight," Prince told the crowd before launching a set that included his most famous hits.

    Prince also called on the city's youth to fix a "broken system."

    At one point, Prince invited onstage Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby, who has charged six officers in Gray's death.
