Jennifer Hudson closed the March For Our Lives protest in Washington DC.

Oscar winner Hudson was joined on stage by a student choir when she sang the classic anthem at the massive march.

She said: "We all came here for change today, right?

"We've all lost somebody. I'm sure a long time ago, you never thought you'd be standing here today.

"But we're all here today for a reason. We all got a story, we all got

a purpose, and we all want change."

Several other celebrities like George Clooney, Common and Kim Kardashian, joined the protest that was organized by the Parkland School in Florida who lost 17 students in a shooting on Feb 14, 2018.
