After protests over Gray's death gave way to riots in the city, the singer-songwriter recorded a song called "Baltimore," dedicated to residents and to Gray, in which he calls for justice and peace.
"The system is broken," he shouted to the crowd at the Royal Farms Area. "It's up to you young folks to fix it." Prince had announced he would come to town to play live. Audio from the concert was streamed free via the digital live music service TIDAL.
