Alicia Keys went on to explain, “Of course there is NO perfect way to die. That phrase doesn’t even make sense. Just like it doesn’t make sense that there are so many innocent lives that should not have been taken from us due to the destructive culture of police violence”.
Alicia Keys, who has been extremely vocal in the movement following Geroge Floyd’s death, wrote ‘A Perfect Way to Die’ as a tribute to the countless lives that have been lost as a result of police brutality, stemming from systemic racism.
Her performance at the BET Awards 2020 served as a powerful reminder that the fight for justice must continue. And as Alicia Keys occupied the screen, fans world over wept in solidarity.
