The concert will also feature the art installation  “Ring of Freedom”  by Stephanie Mercedes. This beautiful work of art is formed from melting down a Sig Sauer MCX rifle - the same rifle used in the Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando, FL - and turning it into 49 bells representing the 49 victims of that shooting.
