Beyonce Dedicates Song To Bankrupt Detroit

(Radio.com) On July 20, Beyonce made a stop in Detroit, Michigan as part of her current world tour, The Mrs. Carter Show. It also just so happened to be two days after the city filed for bankruptcy.

Being the humanitarian she is, Bey attempted to spread some good vibes by dedicating Sam Cooke's "A Change Is Gonna Come" to the city and its inhabitants.

The black and white clip begins by panning over the sea of fans screaming for Bey before she launches into the song, which was released in 1964 and became an anthem for the Civil Rights Movement.

The video also features shots of the city that celebrate its great history from Motown to the auto industry. The clip also honors some of Detroit's famous inhabitants including Aretha Franklin, Aaliyah, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Eminem, Jay Z's new pal and collaborator, Jack White, along with Kid Rock, who made his own comments about the city's troubles recently.
