Watch some of the most memorable performances from Saturday's protests.

Washington was the center of Saturday's Women's March, and it hosted some powerful performances from the likes of Alicia Keys, Janelle Monae, and Maxwell.

Both Keys and Monae, on top of performing, also shared some words for the crowd. Keys introduced "Girl On Fire" by speaking out against oppression and speaking up for the marginalized voices of America. "We will not allow our bodies to be owned and controlled by men in government, or men anywhere for that matter," she said. "We will not allow our compassionate souls to get stepped on. We want the best for all Americans. No hate, no bigotry, no Muslim registry. We value education, health care and equality."



Monae was joined by the mothers of Eric Garner, Mohamed Bah, Dontre Hamilton, Trayvon Martin and Jordan Davis, all young black men who were unjustly killed, three of which at the hand of police officers. She later performed her song "Hell You Talmbout." Within the performance, she called out the names of Janisha Fonville and Sandra Bland, to which the crowd responded "Say her name!"

Maxwell delivered a tender cover of Kate Bush's "This Woman's Work."
