What caught my attention is what Erykah said.

“What good is religion if you push out love if it’s not in your comfort zone?” 
“My main focus in art is people; politics comes last when we connect as artists on stage.” 
“I’m here for the people and hope that the minister meets with me and hope we see love. Doesn’t know me and my music. Many people here care about the show."
“Art is often misunderstood in the realm of religion. Art can’t be censored by anyone.”

Well said.
