*Through tears, Miguel addressed the past week’s police violence in Louisiana and Baton Rouge during his set at London’s Wireless Festival on Friday night.

“We can’t let s**t just blow over and not take action anymore,” Miguel said to the Wireless Festival crowd. “Look, our children will inherit this Earth when we’re gone. What are we leaving for them? What are we doing for them now, not tomorrow? Now!”

Alton Sterling and Philando Castile were fatally shot by police officers in separate incidents on July 5 and 6. On July 7, five white police officers — Brent Thompson, Patrick Zamarripa, Michael Krol, Michael Smith and Lorne Ahrens – were shot and killed during a protest in Dallas.

Miguel, who earlier on Friday released new song “How Many,” dedicated to the Black Lives Matter movement, said on the Wireless stage that he couldn’t sleep the night before.

He continued: “We cannot rest anymore. We have to do something. We have to say something. I’m sorry if I’m preaching to you. But it’s true.”
