Miguel headlined the #SchoolsNotPrisons concert at Adelanto Stadium in Adelanto, California.
The free show, which also featured performances by Los Rakas and Ceci Bastida, was designed to raise awareness about the fight to close all detention centers and demand the fair treatment of immigrants awaiting decisions on their ability to stay in the United States.
Before the concert began, the artists and advocates for the cause held a news conference outside the Adelanto Immigrant Prison to launch a Change.org petition. The goal is to get major media outlets to begin referring to detention centers as immigrant prisons.
During the concert, Miguel debuted a song titled “Now” off his upcoming album, War and Leisure.
