FAMOUS YET FALLING
Tarver began his singing career at a very young age, singing in choirs from age four and appearing in some famous music videos. He eventually went on to perform songs for the late 90's "Romeo + Juliet" movie.
Tarver took to his music, using his talent for melodies to fight against police brutality.
The celebrity also appeared in two of the "American Idol" competitions not long after his role in "Romeo + Juliet." Unfortunately, despite all this success, the singer faced difficult times, alleging that he was molested.

“I was hurting. I had been molested, I had been raped, I had lost my career, which is what I had dreamed of doing all my life."
He then returned to his hometown in Texas. Unfortunately, his demons returned with him, causing the talented music artist to dabble deeply in suicidal ideation, alcohol, and drugs.

FIGHTING POLICE BRUTALITY
Beyond fighting his inner trauma and darkness, Tarver took to his music, using his talent for melodies to fight against police brutality. This came after his cousin Darius Tarver died due to police officers shooting him.
In honor of this devastating death, he released a single called "Stand Our Ground." This single was released almost exactly one year after his cousin passed away.

Of course, Tarver is not the only music artist to address police brutality and racial issues. Last year, country and pop star Maren Morris released a song that specifically spoke to the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement.
The song was called "Better Than We Found It" and was co-written among four people, including Morris herself. The music clip shows many harrowing scenes, such as a man of color's life being taken by the police.
