"Does anybody hear us pray," Prince asks in the song. "From Michael Brown to Freddie Gray. Peace is more than the absence of war."

The concert was announced just five days ago, and was “meant to be a catalyst for pause and reflection," according to a statement released by Live Nation.

The audio from the concert was streamed on Tidal, Jay Z's new streaming service.

In a statement, Jay Z said he is "honored to join Prince in his mission to inspire through the uniting power of music and be able to offer a platform where this moment can be shared globally. [...] Our prayers go out to Freddie Gray's family and every family affected by brutality and senseless violence."

Some of the proceeds from the concert will be donated to "local Baltimore based youth charities," according to the arena website.
