A 12-year-old gospel singer who made a song protesting police brutality has landed a record deal.

Keedron Bryant's song, "I Just Wanna Live," went viral after it was posted on social media following the death of George Floyd.

Warner Records released the single on Friday in honor of Juneteenth and said 100 percent of the net profits will be donated to the NAACP. In addition, Amazon Music is donating one dollar -- up to $50,000 -- to the NAACP for every stream of the song through 9 p.m. Friday.

The Florida native has appeared on CNN, the Ellen DeGeneres show and other programs.

LeBron James and former President Barack Obama are among Bryant's fans.
