“Kennedy Stephens’ tribute to Breonna Taylor brings chills,” noted People magazine on September 24th, just two days after State Attorney General Cameron’s decision not to charge the police with her death. “[The song] is pulling at the heartstrings of celebrities nationwide as America mourns Taylor’s death and clamor for justice after none of Taylor’s killers were charged for her death on Tuesday.”
The video of Kennedy’s “Black Will See Praise (Wounds)” was first posted on the Instagram page of her manager, Alex Avant, son of “The Black Godfather,” music legend executive Clarence Avant. Many of the manager’s friends quickly shared the clip on their IG timelines. “God bless you for this!!!! We cannot let up… we must continue to fight for justice,” wrote Jamie Foxx. “Kennedy killed it everyone watching please share with your friends,” wrote Tiffany Haddish.
Snoop Dogg, Diddy, family attorney Ben Crump, Naomi Campbell, Black Lives Matter founder Opal Tometi, and many others voiced support of Kennedy and “Black Will See Praise (Wounds).” Gayle King brought attention to Kennedy Stephens and her song on October 16th in a CBS News Special broadcast on BET.
“It was important for me to create this tribute to Breonna Taylor because she was at home minding her business; she did nothing wrong,” Kennedy told Heart and Soul magazine. “If we don’t fight, it gives the criminal justice system a reason to opt-out and act like nothing happened. Even though a settlement has been awarded to the family, I know they would much rather have Breonna back.”
