 This past Saturday power couple Jay Z and Beyoncé took time out of their busy touring schedules to attend a #JusticeForTrayvon rally in New York City, founded by The Trayvon Martin Foundation as well as spokesperson Al Sharpton

The nation is very upset with the final verdict of the Zimmerman Trial released two weeks ago. Millions are questioning why did Florida let a murderer roam free without any conviction of being responsible for the death of Trayvon Martin. People are now arguing and rallying for Civil Justice of Trayvon Martin

Though Jay Z and Beyoncé weren't there to talk, they showed their love and support as American citizens fighting for a cause. What a beautiful and brave thing of the couple to do since this trial has seemed to tear the nation apart. The two have been vocal on the situation via their performances, interviews and blogs. 

The most respectable way of showing their love and support was both artists dedicating songs to Trayvon Martin during their tours. Last week, Beyoncé dedicates her mega hit "Halo" after a moment of silence for Trayvon Martin at her Nashiville show. This past weekend Justin Timberlake and Jay Z dedicated "Forever Young" to Trayvon Martin at their Yankee's Stadium show of their joint tour 'Legends of the Summer'. 

Take A Look At Both Performances After The Jump.
