A few of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums attending this weekend’s March For Our Lives rally in Washington, DC.  Kim Kardashian West‘s husband Kanye West attended the event with his daughter North and her grandparents.

They were spotted with North on her papa’s shoulders in the middle of a packed crowd.

Jennifer Hudson delivered a soulful gospel-inspired rendition of Bob Dylan’s “The Times They Are a-Changin‘” to close out the March. WATCH

The movement calls for stricter gun control laws following the massacre of 17 students at a shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.  Other celebrity supporters of the event include Selena Gomez, Amy Schumer, George Clooney and Paul McCartney.

Hudson gets props for always jumping in to support youth movements.  She is among a host of other celebs (like Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Rihanna, Lenny Kravitz, Zoë Kravitz, Queen Latifah, Pink, Bono,  and Rosario Dawsonto also support the Black Lives Matter movement aimed at addressing disproportionate number of killing of UNARMED black civilians by police with impunity. Kanye West has a history of controversial statements but has also been a supporter of the BLM movement.

The Times They Are A-Changin’

WRITTEN BY: BOB DYLAN

Come gather ’round people

Wherever you roam

And admit that the waters

Around you have grown

And accept it that soon

You’ll be drenched to the bone

If your time to you is worth savin’

Then you better start swimmin’ or you’ll sink like a stone

For the times they are a-changin’

Come writers and critics

Who prophesize with your pen

And keep your eyes wide

The chance won’t come again

And don’t speak too soon

For the wheel’s still in spin

And there’s no tellin’ who that it’s namin’

For the loser now will be later to win

For the times they are a-changin’

Come senators, congressmen

Please heed the call

Don’t stand in the doorway

Don’t block up the hall

For he that gets hurt

Will be he who has stalled

There’s a battle outside and it is ragin’

It’ll soon shake your windows and rattle your walls

For the times they are a-changin’

Come mothers and fathers

Throughout the land

And don’t criticize

What you can’t understand

Your sons and your daughters

Are beyond your command

Your old road is rapidly agin’

Please get out of the new one if you can’t lend your hand

For the times they are a-changin’

The line it is drawn

The curse it is cast

The slow one now

Will later be fast

As the present now

Will later be past

The order is rapidly fadin’

And the first one now will later be last

For the times they are a-changin’
