Stars will wear white roses on the Grammy Awards red carpet this weekend in support of the Time's Up movement.

In a similar way to Time's Up, members of the music industry have gathered to form their own initiative called Voices in Entertainment. The initiative was founded by Roc Nation Senior VP Meg Harkins and Head of Rhythmic Promotion at Interscope Karen Rait, and has garnered the attention of Rita Ora, Kelly Clarkson, Dua Lipa and more, who are all reportedly expected to be donning white roses at the event.

In an interview with Billboard, Rait explained the inception of the movement, saying: "Music artists have a lot of impact.... So it's only fitting that that music's biggest night show the support for equality and safety in the workplace and that people need to be cognisant of their fellow employes."

Of the decision to chose a white rose as the movement's symbol, The Huffington Postreports that the rose was chosen because "historically it stands for hope, peace, sympathy and resistance".

If this movement is as successful as the "blackout" at the Golden Globes, we can only images The Grammys red carpet will be filled with a sea of white roses this Sunday.
