Thirteen-year-old Keedron Bryant went viral this past May with his amazing voice in a video of himself singing “I Just Wanna Live,” a song written as a response to the death of George Floyd, to help bring about change, in hopes to end violence against Black people.


Now the talented teenager is sharing his thoughts with People Magazine, telling the popular news outlet that not only does he have “hope[s] [that] violence toward Black people changes,” but also that, “[he] want[s] to live without fear.”

“My parents always tell me and my sister, ‘You have to know that you’re Black and when you go out into the world, make sure you respect people and treat everybody how you would want to be treated,'” Bryant said in the interview. “They want us to have knowledge so we’re not clueless and confused when we get pulled over by a police officer when we’re older. To think I’m a Black male going out into the streets makes me afraid, but I always try to keep my faith in God and that he’ll protect me.”

Of course, Bryant’s story does not stop there. Within weeks of his video going viral, the young rising star landed a record deal and “I Just Wanna Live,” is the title track of his new uplifting EP, which was released on September 11th. 
“Even if people are sad about what’s going on. I hope that I bring them joy with music,” Bryant stated. “I don’t want to be known as just the ‘I Just Wanna Live’ boy. I want to leave a really big footprint on the world, and I’ll always keep fighting for what is right.”
We have a feeling that this is just the beginning for this incredibly amazing young man. We cannot wait to see what the future holds.
