Jon Batiste led a concert-like rally at Barclays Center Friday night called "We are a Revival."
Batiste is best known for being the musical director of the “Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”
He says the rally was a celebration of black lives through music, a different way of connecting for a common cause. 
 
One protester says, "I saw all this type of protesting you see on the news you see marching and shouting George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, so it was a nice touch to hear music."
Batiste says this rally was a continuation of his first demonstration on June 6 in Union Square.
