Actor-singer Jamie Foxx speaks next to Trayvon Martin’s parents Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton, during a candlelight vigil for Martin in Union Square on Tuesday, February 26, 2013 in New York City.
On Feb. 26, 2012, 17-year-old Martin was shot by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in the Orlando, Fla., suburb of Stanford. Zimmerman initially was not prosecuted because he claimed self-defense.
Various memorial vigils were held across the United States to mark the one year anniversary of the teenager’s shooting death. Check out video of Jamie Foxx showing his support to Martin’s parents below.
