Miguel Shares His Thoughts About Recent Events & the Black Lives Lost in “How Many”

Miguel has added to the list of celebrities that are frustrated with the recent events that have been happening over the past few days.  In his new song “How Many”, Miguel asks “how many black lives does it take to make a change?”

Miguel sings in the opening verse: “I’m tired of human lives turned into hashtags and prayer hands.  I’m tired of watching these murderes get off and bury the lost loved innocent.  Brother and sisters it’s time to wake up….”

He wrote on his Soundcloud “This version was started (written/recorded) here in London in my hotel room between the hours of 4am and around 7am when i passed out. ill update this song every week until its complete. Please feel free to share.”  Very powerful song.  Please check it out below.
