Pharrell Williams did his huge festival, "Something in the Water" in Virginia Beach, his hometown. He did it for the culture, however, don't expect that festival to return any time soon, or at all, at least in his hometown. Of course, Pharrell's cousin, Donovan Lynch was shot and killed by police and clearly, it had an impact on the producer. The city was devastated the festival would not return. Virginia Beach City Manager Patrick Duhaney basically begged Pharrell to come and sit and speak with the city about bringing the festival back for 2022. Of course Something in the Water didn't happen last year or this year because of the pandemic, but Duhaney wanted to meet with Pharrell before making a final decision about not having the festival in Virginia Beach, according to WAVY news However, Pharrell penned a letter back to Duhaney saying the energy in Virginia Beach is toxic. Pharrell said when he did the festival, it was to ease racial tension and unify the region and while he achieved those things, including the economic impact with the festival, Pharrell said he wish he felt that same energy from leadership in losing the festival was the same energy following the loss of his cousin. While Pharrell says he loves his city, he wishes the city could do better. Check out both of the letters HERE.
