Mary J. Blige belts out a song about police violence to presidential candidate Hillary Clinton
in a new interview for Apple Music’s The 411 with Mary J. Blige
In a preview clip of the interview, which premieres on Friday, the R&B icon sings the track as Clinton intently listens.
“If an officer ever stops you, always be polite and never ever run away,” sings the GRAMMY-winner, as Clinton nods along. “Promise momma you’ll keep your hands inside. Is it a gun? Is it a knife? Is it a wallet? This is your life.”
Blige then takes Clinton’s hand as she belts out the powerful line, “It ain’t no secret, no secret my friend, you can get killed just living in your American skin.”
The 45-year-old star is a well-known supporter of the Democratic nominee, choosing one of Clinton’s fundraisers in March to debut her single, “Strength of a Woman.”
She is one of many celebrities backing Clinton, including Kerry Washington
, Sigourney Weaver, Connie Britton, Meryl Streep, Demi Lovato
and Katy Perry.
