A message from Messy Mya's big sister Angelle Barre'
“I don’t want my brother’s death to be just another unsolved homicide in New Orleans. Hundreds of people were at that party so I know somebody saw who killed him and what happened,” said his sister, Anjelle Barre. “He was a talented person and loved by many. He was about to become a father. Enough is enough. Please stand with the Barre family in speaking out against my brother’s death and senseless violence,” Barre said in a statement to the press.
There will also be performances by Magnolia Shorty, Elm Boi Peg, Crowd Mover Crystal, Big Freedia, and Sissy Nobby following the speakers at the rally. DJ Showboy CJ will be on the one's and two's.
