*Keedron Bryant, the 13-year-old viral star whose inspiring George Floyd tribute anthem “I Just Wanna Live” touched listeners and led to a record contract, released a heartbreaking second video for the track directed by Sara Lacombe and including references to black men and women who have died at the hands of police.

The clip opens with a group of children reciting the Pledge of Allegiance as a giant American flag drips blood above them. Bryant, on his knees and surrounded by young people, begins singing as a white police officer aims a gun at his face.

More stark imagery in the visual includes a black hoodie with Skittles in one pocket and an Arizona iced tea in the other in a reference to the murder of Trayvon Martin, as well as shots of an American flag tied into a noose, a hanging bundle of handcuffs and chains and the sight of Bryant begging for his life as the officer stands unmoved.

Later, a Black body painted with the names of Eric Brown, Floyd, Freddie Gray, Breonna Taylor and other Black men and women who died at the hands of police fills the screen, with Bryant standing in the middle of American flags pointed at his neck like spears.
