Rapper and St. Louis native Nelly is pushing for peace in the wake of Michael Brown's death.
Over the weekend, he urged crowds at a charity event and his concert to pay tribute to the teen.
"If I could get everybody to rise and just raise their hands in support for everything that's going on back home in my city," Nelly told the crowd. "I'm asking for you and pleading for you, raise your hands for one sec, say 'hands up, please don't shoot,' so we can send our love back home to St. Louis.
In interview with CNN's Erin Burnett Grammy Award-Winning Artist Nelly says the anger on the streets of Ferguson has to be channeled into something positive.
