BeBe Winans shares an emotional, timely new single titled 'Black Lives Matter'

As protests across the U.S. and the world demand an end to racial injustice, gospel and R&B legend Bebe Winans shared a timely new single with a fitting declaration: "Black Lives Matter."

Winans began writing the song after the April 2015 death of Freddie Gray, who died while in police custody in Baltimore. Winans felt more inclined to finish the song after the continued deaths of Black people in America at the hands of police.

"After witnessing the horrific tragedies of Freddie Gray, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd and so many other countless lives being cut short, I started to think about the ways I could lend my voice to this movement," Winans said in a statement. "Music has always been a way to bring positivity, hope, and people together, so I wanted to create a song that could help bring a sense of peace to this world for our children, including my own. Black. Lives. Matter."
