Fil-Am musician H.E.R. kept the tears falling with the debut performance of her new song "I Can't Breathe" which honors the late George Floyd whose wrongful death has sparked Black Lives Matter protests across the globe.

During her set at iHeartRadio's Living Room Concert Series, the Grammy award-winning artist described the brand new track as "very painful" and "very revealing".

She continued: "These lyrics were kind of easy to write because it came from a conversation of what’s happening right now, what’s been happening, and the change that we need to see. I think music is powerful when it comes to change and when it comes to healing and that’s why I wrote this song, to make a mark in history. And I hope this song does that."

Aside from premiering her George Floyd tribute, the 22-year-old also performed her original track "Fate", an unreleased track called "Uninvited", and a cover of Green Day's "Boulevard Of Broken Dreams" among others.

H.E.R., whose real name is Gabriella Wilson, was born in 1997 to Filipina-American mother Agnes Wilson and African-American father Kenny Wilson.
