Beyoncé may be focused on her Mrs. Carter World Tour, being a mother to Blue Ivy and wife to Jay-Z but that doesn't mean that she doesn't have time to follow national news stories. On the heels of her Trayvon Martin vigil appearance in New York City, Queen Bey also offered her support to the city of Detroit, during her Mrs. Carter World Tour Saturday night at The Palace of Auburn Hills.
Queen Bey kept hop alive for Detroit natives as she shouted "Nothing Stops Detroit," after a heart felt rendition of Sam Cooke's classic, "A Change Is Gonna Come." The performance also featured a video montage staring some of the Detroit greats, like Eminem, Aretha Franklin, Berry Gordy, Kid Rock, The White Stripes, and more.
Although we all know the basis for her tribute, Bey did not announce the bankruptcy issues which was announced on the Thursday prior to her concert. Beyoncé turned down a request to comment, with a spokesperson, according to Billboard. The "Halo" singer told Billboard "This was a unique tribute to the history of an incredible city and a celebration of the strong spirit of its people."
