If you had to choose between St. Louis-born rapper Nelly and Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks to comment publicly on the Mike Brown murder in Ferguson, Missouri, surely you’d figured Nelly would be the one.

You’d be entirely wrong. Phaedra, apparently on her own accorded headed down to Ferguson with no camera crew in two to provide some comfort to the McSpadden/Brown families in the wake of the loss of their firstborn son.

She was photographed with Delsurea Harris, Michael Brown’s grandmother at a news conference earlier in the week. Parks later tweeted:

During my St. Louis visit, I had the pleasure of meeting #MichaelBrown’s mother Lesley McSpadden. Although, we come from different places & backgrounds, we are very much alike-We are both black women & mothers who deeply love our sons. Unfortunately, she is planning her son’s funeral while I struggle to make sure my sons never know her son’s fate. #fixitjesus #JusticeforMikeBrown #Ferguson #prayforpeace #prayforstlouis #StopPoliceBrutality
