'I Just Wanna Live' schoolboy singer lands record deal



A schoolboy gospel singer whose song protesting the killing of African Americans by police went viral has been signed by Warner Records.

Keedron Bryant, 12, gained fast acclaim when his song "I Just Wanna Live" was posted on social media after George Floyd was killed while in the custody of Minnesota police.

Written by his mother Johnnetta, the acapella performance shot on a smartphone moved many as Bryant sang: "I'm a young black man doing all that I can."

It has become one of the unofficial anthems of a movement as Black Lives Matter protests have occurred around the globe.

The Florida native has appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and other programmes. LeBron James and President Barack Obama are among Bryant's fans.
