Pharrell Williams has cancelled his Something In The Water festival which was meant to be taken place in Virginia Beach.
The 48-year-old musician has decided to not go ahead with the festival as a police officer from Virginia fatally shot his cousin there earlier this year.
Pharrell has wrote a letter about the decision to cancel the festival, stating:
“When we did the festival, it was to ease racial tension, to unify the region, bring about economic development opportunities … I love my city, but for far too long it has been run by – and – with toxic energy.”
