“One Sweet Day”

Artists Come Together For Black Lives Matter

Every 28 Hours a person of color is killed by a police officer or security guard in America. The unjust, extrajudicial killings of black people is a crisis we’ve seen reach a fever pitch as of late with the killers of Mike Brown, Eric Garner and Aiyana Jones going free without a trial.

R&B singers Mprynt joined with Philly group Good Girl in a cover of “One Sweet Day”, the smash hit made popular by Boyz II Men and Mariah Carey in the 90s, to honor the victims. Keep clicking to see the video and cameos from some of your favorite celebs who are down for the cause.
