Miguel Sheds Tears On Stage In Response To Recent Police Shootings | Music News
Singer Miguel broke down in tears during his performance at Wireless Festival on Friday (8 July) whilst addressing the recent police violence in the US.
Miguel was performing on the main stage at Finsbury Park before The 1975 and headliner Calvin Harris, and took time out of his show to reflect on the traumatic events of this week. The 30-year-old singer was left heartbroken by the tragic loss of African-Americans due to police brutality and took it upon himself to reach out to the crowd:
“We can’t let s**t just blow over and not take action anymore. Look—our children will inherit this Earth when we’re gone. What are we leaving for them? What are we doing for them now, not tomorrow? Now!”
He continued, tearfully: “I couldn’t sleep last night. I will not rest. I can not rest. We can not rest any more! We gotta do something, we gotta say something. Sorry about preaching… but it’s true. It’s true”.
Additionally, Miguel shared a demo for a song called “How Many”, written to support the Black Lives Matter movement.
