Mariah Carey Sings ‘There’s Got to Be a Way’ in Response to George Floyd’s Death: Watch
Mariah Carey took to social media to sing a snippet of her 1990 song “There’s Got to Be a Way” while demanding justice for George Floyd, a black man who was recently killed by a white police officer in Minneapolis. “I wrote this song for my first album. Still looking for answers today. We have to make a change. We can’t be silent,” Carey captioned the video, adding the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter.Earlier this week, a video of Floyd’s death surfaced, showing officer Derek Chauvin kneeling on the neck of Floyd for eight minutes. Chauvin was later charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter in the death of Floyd.
A woman, whom police did not identify, was found passed out next to him, and was also taken to hospital but was "soon released," the statement said.
Detectives came to believe he had suffered a "violent domestic incident" after they investigated and reviewed medical evidence from the autopsy, police said.
"In complex cases like this one, it can take a while to gather the evidence needed to piece together what happened," homicide unit Staff Sgt. Colin Chisholm said in the statement. "Hopefully this can bring some closure to Mr. Rain's family."
In the release, police called Rain's death a "domestic homicide." Officials noted that the majority of domestic violence victims are women, with men making up roughly one in five in Calgary.
They urged anyone experiencing domestic abuse to ask for help and noted that harmful behaviour can worsened over time.
