Janelle Monae, Maxwell to Perform at Women’s March on Washington

The march will take place the day after the inauguration.

"Music has always been a powerful tool for galvanizing unity and I believe that singing and standing together, our voices will be stronger than any force that tries to repress us," Monae said in the statement.

"The Women’s March on Washington aims to send a message to all levels of government and the incoming administration: that we stand together in solidarity and expect elected leaders to act to protect the rights of women, their families and their communities," the official statement said today.
