Alicia Keys The singer delivered the first live performance of her heartbreaking new song, “Perfect Way to Die,” at the 2020 BET Virtual Awards on Sunday,m Alicia wore all black including a long black leather jacket worn over a bandeau tube top. With her hair tightly held back, she completed the look with classic golden hoop earrings.
There’s so much on our minds and in our hearts! My favorite thing about music is how it reminds us that we’re not alone. This performance for the BET Awards touched me deeply. What did u feel?
Alicia explained to her fans on June 18 that she has felt “called by music like I never have before.” “I have been following its lead. It has led me to the song ‘A Perfect Way to Die,'” she wrote on Instagram. “The song title is so powerful and heartbreaking because WE are heartbroken by so many who have died unjustly.”
“Of course, there is NO perfect way to die. That phrase doesn’t even make sense,” Keys continued. “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.”
“Sometimes I don’t have the words and music is the only thing that can speak. I hope this speaks to you. I hope one day this song won’t be so relevant,” she concluded her post. “Let’s NEVER stop fighting for justice.”
