Keedron Bryant’s ‘I Just Wanna Live’ Is AP’s Song Of The Year

Associated Press Music Editor Mesfin Fekadu has named Keedron Bryant‘s “I Just Wanna Live” as the AP’s Song of the Year.

He writes:

During times of turmoil and unrest, people respond differently. Some protest. Some cry. And some sing. Following the gruesome death of George Floyd, Johnnetta Bryant turned to God and asked for a pray — and the lyrics to “I Just Wanna Live” were born.

She asked her son, then 12-year-old Keedron Bryant, to sing the song and the rest is for the history books. Keedron Bryant’s powerful performance about being a young Black man in today’s world went viral, with everyone from Barack Obama to LeBron James praising the future superstar and his family for their strength and positive message.

The song not only helped Keedron Bryant land a record deal, it helped heal the world at a time when music is a language that unites us all.
