13-YEAR-OLD KEEDRON BRYANT DELIVERS A MESSAGE OF RESILIENCE ON DEBUT EP I JUST WANNA LIVE
On the nineteenth anniversary of 9/11, 13-year-old artist and activist Keedron Bryant has released his uplifting debut EP I JUST WANNA LIVE[Warner Records], which is a joyful ode to the resilient human spirit. Working closely with legendary producer Dem Jointz (Mariah Carey, Brandy, Anderson .Paak), Keedron showcases his mature vocal delivery, elevated harmonies, and a vibrant sound that naturally fuses gospel, R&B, and soul. His lyrics are intentional, serving as a direct call-to-action for equality, unity, and meaningful change, and offering a hopeful dose of healing to the world.
Keedron Bryant soared onto the global radar with his energizing single “U GOT THIS” and the timely, debut title track “I JUST WANNA LIVE,” recognizing Juneteenth and adding a strong voice to the current racial justice movement. Two mixes further power the anthem on the EP – an all-star rendition featuring musical powerhouses Andra Day, Lucky Daye & IDK, and the Gospel Spirit Mix, produced by GRAMMY® Award-winning gospel legends Charles Jenkins and Aaron Lindsay. Today, Keedron also unveiled an emotional visual for the “I JUST WANNA LIVE” Gospel Spirit Mix, which features him singing alongside his church choir and captures beautiful, yet charged, contemporary dance choreography.
With an immediate musical impact felt around the globe, Keedron has already garnered praise from Barack Obama, Alicia Keys, Dr. Dre, and Kirk Franklin as well as recognition from TIME, CNN, Rolling Stone, and Billboard, among others. This year, he gave heartfelt performances of “I JUST WANNA LIVE” during the NFL Kickoff Game Halftime Show, the opening of the BET Awards, ABC’s Juneteenth: A Celebration of Overcoming primetime special, and the NAACP’s Juneteenth Special on Revolt TV. Keedron has already made his mark as a young voice of this generation, and he’s just getting started!
