Other posts on her page show that she's continuously abreast of what's going on around her. She put up a petition post regarding the unjust killing of a young black woman, Breonna Taylor, in her home. The image read:
"Breonna Taylor was murdered in her home by police while she laid sleeping. Let's wake up in her honor and fight for justice...petition link in bio."
Zion was born when her mom was only 17-years-old. The singer went through a tough time financially until she won "American Idol" in 2004.
Having risen from poverty to fame with hit tracks climbing to Billboard charts, she was able to afford a better life for her daughter.

In 2015, she married Kendall Taylor, a businesswoman. For Barrino, this was the best thing to happen to her after a few years of backlash from critics over allegations that she's a homewrecker due to her relationship with a married man.
Taylor came into her life when she contemplated suicide, and the couple developed a healthy relationship right from the start.
They also have two grandkids. The singer's husband has a son, Trey, from a past relationship. In January, Trey welcomed his second son. His dad and stepmom proudly shared the news online.
The "American Idol" star also shares updates of her only daughter online and ensures to support her when the need arises. When Zion turned 18, the proud mother gushed on the young adult and narrated interesting details of her birth.
When the 18-year-old graduated from high school, the singer was present with the father of her child, Brandel Shouse, to support their daughter. She uploaded a never-before-seen picture of herself, Brandel, and the young graduate.
