Payne lives about a half-hour from Dallas in Grand Prairie, Texas. A gunman opened fire on a peaceful protest in Dallas against fatal police shootings of black men in Minnesota and Louisiana on Thursday killing five police officers and wounding seven other people. Payne says she hopes her rendition of the song inspires people to make the world "a better place."
