Amidst all the chaos and protests happening following the death of George Floyd's family, Keke Wyatt put her frustrations into song by singing one in dedication to the late man's family.
George Floyd was an unarmed Black man in Minneapolis who only wanted to buy some groceries. However, after a clerk called police in as she thought he was writing a bad check, he was tackled to the ground and ultimately passed away.
Many celebrities have used their platforms to speak out on the injustice experienced by Floyd, the latest victim of police brutality in America. Alicia Keys and Keke Wyatt have now joined the list, using their voices to sing a song for the victim's family.

A SONG TRIBUTE
In the video, Wyatt is seen singing a song as she holds back her tears. Although she kept it together, she couldn't help but express how difficult it was for her to do so.
"I want to dedicate this to the George Floyd family. Remember that GOD HAS YOUR BACKS. I'm soooo sorry for your loss. #Hetouchedme God Bless U!!! Sorry I sound bad. Trying not to cry... I can't imagine this as a mommy!!!"
A CALL FOR JUSTICE
Aside from Wyatt, the likes of Beyonce, Halle Berry, Diddy, Jada Pinkett-Smith, and LeBron James have used their platforms to honor Floyd's life and to demand justice from those who deserve to be put to jail for his death.
After his death, massive protests have been happening throughout the nation, especially in Minneapolis.
On top of this, celebrities have also called out the continuing problems of racism in America, which has been a problem for decades. To them, there seems to be a lack of concern and regard for Black lives, which have prompted movements like "Black Lives Matter."
GEORGE'S UNFAIR DEATH
George Floyd was simply writing a check at a grocery store when a clerk suspected him of writing a bad check. When he tried to reason out that he wasn't, he was tackled by a police officer on rough cement while the officer had his knee to Floyd's neck.
For five minutes, his pleas of help were not listened to, despite him letting them know that he couldn't breathe. Bystanders, for fear of their lives, could not help but try to plead officers to let him go and arrest him properly.
After his death, massive protests have been happening throughout the nation, especially in Minneapolis. People continue to call for justice, especially since the police officers involved in the case were only fired, not arrested.
