A 12-year-old black boy whose music about the feelings of trepidation of being a youthful African American turned into a web sensation has been marked by a significant US record label.


Keedron Bryant's melody I Just Wanna Live, posted online one day after the passing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota, is out on Friday.


Warner Records coordinated the discharge to harmonize with Juneteenth, which denotes the finish of hundreds of years of US bondage.


The tune has just piled on a large number of preferences.


The deep track was composed by Keedron's mom and is sung a cappella by him.


It incorporates the verses: "I'm a young black man, doing all that I can to stand.


"Oh, but when I look around, and I see what's being done to my kind.


"Everyday I'm being hunted as prey. My people don't want no trouble"


The youthful gospel vocalist's unique Instagram post has pulled in over 3m enjoys, and has drawn applause from previous President Barack Obama, ball legend LeBron James, artist Janet Jackson and entertainer Lupita Nyong'o.


"It's energizing since this is what God's called me to do," Keedron, of Jacksonville, Florida, told the Associated Press not long ago.


"It's simply been an energizing encounter to work with my mother."


His mom, Johnnetta Bryant, said that viewing the video of George Floyd, an unarmed dark man, kicking the bucket as a cop bowed on his neck a month ago "truly hit my heart just so profoundly on the grounds that I am a mother to a dark child.


"I have a black spouse. I have black siblings, uncles, cousins, companions."


Warner intends to give the benefits to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.
