H.E.R. is lifting her fist and her voice to fight racial injustice with her new song, ‘I Can’t Breathe.’
Written in response to the latest slew of police brutality-related deaths of unarmed Black American citizens (and the protests that have resulted), the GRAMMY winner unveiled the heartfelt during her recent performance on the iHeartRadio Living Room Concert Series.
“Praying for change because the pain makes you tender,” H.E.R. sings. “All of the names you refuse to remember/Was somebody’s brother or friend, son to a mother that’s crying, saying/I can’t breathe, you’re taking my life from me.”
