Jay Z and wife Beyoncé attended a New York City rally in honor of Trayvon Martin on Saturday.

The hip hop power couple did not speak at the rally, but reportedly stood by as Al Sharpton spoke to the crowd. “Jay Z told me, ‘I’m a father. Beyoncé is a mother.’ We all feel the pain and apprehension – the laws must protect everybody, or it doesn’t protect anybody. We do not come from hate, we come from love of children,” Sharpton told the crowd.

Both Beyoncé and Jay Z have publicly addressed the case of Trayvon Martin before. After the verdict declaring George Zimmerman not guilty was announced, Beyoncé took to Twitter, urging fans to sign the NAACP petition asking the Justice Department to begin a Civil Rights case against Zimmerman for shooting Trayvon Martin.

“We are still struggling with the issue of inequality and the lack of value for a black man’s life. Trayvon Martin’s most basic civil right, the right to live, was violated,” Beyoncé wrote on her official website.

The former member of Destiny’s Child also reportedly asked the audience of her July 13 concert for a moment of silence to commemorate Martin and sang ‘I Will Always Love You’ and ‘Halo’ in his honor.

Jay Z followed in his wife’s footsteps a few days later when he and Justin Timberlake (currently on the Legends of the Summer tour) dedicated their last song, a take on "Forever Young," to Martin. “This is for Trayvon, so light up your cell phones New York!,” Jay Z told the crowd at the duo’s New York City concert.
