Keedron Bryant is a 12-year-old that recently went viral for singing a song about being a young black man in America. It’s called ‘I Just Wanna Live’ and the lyrics were written by his mother. It’s pretty heartbreaking, and there’s no denying the kid has some vocal chops! Well, he just signed with Warner Records and they officially recorded his song and released it today. Warner Records is donating 100% of the profits to the NAACP and for every stream of the song on Amazon Music, they will donate $1 to the NAACP for the first 24 hours the song is out, giving up to $50,000.
You actually might recognize Keedron! He’s been singing since he was 5 and he appeared earlier this year on NBC’s variety series ‘Little Big Shots’.
