Over the weekend, she announced her headlining concert in Charlotte, N.C., and fans went crazy after seeing the event’s name: “Hear Me Now! – All Lives Matter.”

But Anthony Hamilton, who was suppose to headline the concert along with Fantasia, released a statement saying that he did not approve the show’s name:
The event, which was originally scheduled to take place Sunday evening, has been postponed to next weekend. Fantasia and her husband posted a video explaining the event title:
The singer also explained why she and her husband chose the show’s “All Lives Matter” title, saying,”Two thousand years ago, Jesus ended the debate on which lives matter. He died for all us. All of us. Martin Luther King stood for love and unity for all people. United we stand, divided we fall. Let’s all stand together. So black lives matter, yes they do. All lives matter.”
