The "Hear Me Now" concert scheduled for Sunday evening in uptown Charlotte has been postponed, according to event organizers.

Eric "E-will" Williams announced through Facebook that the concert featuring Fantasia, Anthony Hamilton, John P. Kee and Dennis Reed has been moved to next weekend because of a scheduling conflict with Romare Bearden Park.

Williams said event organizers did not know that the Panthers had the park rented out for the day for tailgating.

However, the City of Charlotte has reportedly offered to team up with concert organizers to make the concert happen next week.

"The city did call me. They were very nice, they are working with me and I thank God for that," Fantasia Barrino said in a video posted to social media. 

"We were contacted by the city of Charlotte who we made aware of our event. They are in 100 percent support of us and are even willing to provide resources to help us bring it to life," Williams posted on Facebook.

Williams goes on to say the city will be providing sound, lights and "all we need" to make the concert happen next weekend.

Fantasia believes God called her to make the Romare Bearden Park concert happen and says it was going to an event that was more than just the music.

"I don't know if people were coming out thinking they were gonna hear my songs. but what they were really gonna hear was worship. Because I feel like in this day and time and everything that is going on we need to seek out the God," Fantasia said. 

The date and time for the postponed concert has not been finalized, but organizers are expected to talk with city officials to bring the concert to center city.
