Mariah Carey Is looking for answers following the death of George Floyd.
Carey went on social media Saturday (May 30) to sing a snippet of her 1990 song “There’s Got to Be a Way” while demanding justice for Floyd, a black man who was recently killed by a white police officer in Minneapolis.
“I wrote this song for my first album. Still looking for answers today. We have to make a change. We can’t be silent,” Carey captioned the video, adding the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter.
In her post, Carey encouraged fans to text ‘FLOYD’ to 55156 to demand #JusticeForFloyd. The campaign is part of Color of Change petition calling for the officers involved in Floyd’s death to be blocked from working in law enforcement ever again and to have murder charges pressed against them.
“I don’t understand how there can be regulated bigotry,” Carey sings in the clip. “There’s got to be a way to connect this world today.”
