Singer Kennedy Stephens recently posted a touching tribute to Breonna Taylor that has resonated with stars like Jamie Foxx and Tiffany Haddish.
In February, Breonna was killed by police in her apartment in Louisville, Kentucky, and no charges directly related to her death have been filed against the officers.
Stephens wrote the song from Taylor’s point of view, and the haunting lyrics include, “I’m scared for my life. One moment I’m sleeping in my bed with nothing to lose. One second later, I'm feeling my wounds. The world will never be the same because people are fighting for change.” Watch the video here.
Along with the song, Kennedy wrote in the caption, “This week marks 6 months. This is my tribute. I was talking with my manager, @IamAlexAvant Like most of us out there it was starting to get to me. So instead of getting discouraged, I decided to create. Please share/ tag this with 1 person #kennedystephens”
Stephens also told People, “I wrote this song to keep the memory of Breonna Taylor alive. We can’t sit back and wait for justice to be given, we must fight for it. The issues of injustice can’t be ignored.”
Foxx shared the video and wrote, “god bless u for this!!!! We cannot let up... we must continue to fight for justice....#justiceforbreonnataylor#georgefloyd and countless others.”
Haddish also posted with the message, “Kennedy killed it 🔥🔥🔥 everyone watching please share with your friends.”
Kennedy, 19, is a former member of the girl group iD4GIRLS, who performed for President Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama and Oprah in 2015. She debuted her solo album, “Check,” in 2019 while studying at Cal State Fullerton.
