Beyonce’s reaction to the Zimmerman Trial verdict; tributes flood social media

Beyonce called for a moment of silence for 16-year-old Trayvon Martin, during a concert just hours after George Zimmerman was set free.

Mrs. Carter took a moment to honor the teen during her concert at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn. followed by singing the chorus of “I Will Always Love You,” a song originally sang by country music star Dolly Parton, which later transitioned into her global hit “Halo.”

Beyonce is just one of many celebrities who reacted following Zimmerman’s acquittal earlier Saturday evening. Zimmerman had been charged with second-degree murder after shooting and killing the unarmed 17-year-old in February 2012.
