On May 26, the day after George Floyd was killed, 12-year-old Keedron Bryant shared a powerful video where he sang a cappella, “I’m a young Black man/Doing all that I can/To stand.” The song’s lyrics were written by Keedron’s mother Johnetta Bryant. Sharing the video, Bryant wrote, “Just singing what’s on my heart… hope this blesses someone🙏🏾❤️.”
Now, Bryant has signed with Warner Records, who has released a studio version of “I Just Wanna Live,” produced by Dem Jointz. All of the single’s net profits are going to the NAACP. Listen to Keedron Bryant’s “I Just Wanna Live” below (via The Associated Press).
