Swizz Beatz and Estelle call for peace in the U.K.
Swizz Beatz and British singer Estelle asked
fans to pray for peace in the U.K. on Thursday (11Aug11) as they
dedicated a performance in New York to those caught up in the
violent riots across the country.
Swizz Beatz was playing at the Billboard.com
Summer Blowout party when he introduced special guest Estelle to
the stage, and he took a moment to share his thoughts and feelings
about the civil unrest which has devastated cities across England
over the past week.
He and Estelle, who showed her support for
her native country by wearing a pair of jeans emblazoned with the
Union Jack, then asked fans to put their hands in the air and raise
the peace sign to salute the U.K., stressing the need to "spread
love" during "times of trouble".
The R&B star then launched into her new
song, Break My Heart.
Swizz Beatz, who is married to Alicia Keys,
first expressed his sadness at the London riots in a post on his
Twitter.com page on Monday (08Aug11).
In a message to his British fans, he wrote,
"To my Dear friends in London I wish everybody peace! As a culture
we have to be smart and use our energy positively!!!!!!!!"
