American Gospel duo Mary Mary stand with Stevie Wonder to Boycott Florida

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013

A recent article that proves the political power of musicians.

After Stevie Wonder announced his plans to no longer perform in the state of Florida following the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of unarmed teen Trayvon Martin, sibling gospel duo Mary Mary announced their plans to follow his boycott of the Sunshine State’s Stand Your Ground law until the mandate is no longer a part of Florida’s legislature.

Mary Mary have said “We will Stand with Stevie Wonder & Boycott Florida until the Stand Your Ground Law is changed! We love our fans but we Must do something!! We understand a No from us isn’t as big as a No from Stevie Wonder but if all our voices join together we can Really change things! Let’s let our voices be heard JusticeForTrayvonMartin.”

Mary Mary are among many music stars who have publically expressed their disdain over Zimmerman’s clearance, others including Chris Brown, Fantasia, Jaime Foxx, Beyonce and Jay-Z.
