ALICIA KEYS Delivers Emotional Performance Of Latest Single "Perfect Way To Die"
Alicia Keys delivered a touching performance of her latest song “Perfect Way To Die” at the BET Awards 2020.
Directed by Chris Robinson, the live performance also serves as its official music video. It shows the Grammy winner playing the piano while different images of victims of police brutality are being projected onto surrounding buildings.
“Of course there is no perfect way to die. This phrase doesn’t even make sense but that’s what makes the title so powerful and heartbreaking because so many have died unjustly," Alicia said about her Black Lives Matter anthem. "It’s written from the point of view of the mother whose child has been murdered because of the system of racism that looks at Black life as unworthy. We all know none of these innocent lives should have been taken due to the culture of police violence."
She expressed sympathy to those who are demanding justice and also effectively channeled those feelings into a haunting new ballad. Check out this hearfelt performance of “Perfect Way To Die” from Alicia Keys:
