Jamie Foxx attended the vigil to honor the life of Trayvon Martin in New York City. It’s been a year since Martin lost his life at the hands of George Zimmerman via gun violence masquerading as self-defense. Jamie Foxx has been an advocate for Martin and his passion showed through as he sang, “No weapon formed against you shall prosper” to Martin’s parents.

Martin’s parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin were joined by Foxx and over 200 supporters where they lit candles at 7:17 pm (the time Martin was fatally shot) during a moment of silence to remember Martin.

At the vigil, the crowd was told to put their “Hoods up!” which has become a symbol Trayvon’s death and the absurdity over his choice of wardrobe assisting in him losing his life that night.

“This day, until the day I die, will always be Hoods Up Day for me,” Tracy Martin said. We will never forget Trayvon Martin.
