During the first night of the 2020 Democratic National Convention, Leon Bridges appeared to perform his single "Sweeter," in honor of George Floyd and the countless other lives lost to racial profiling and police brutality.
Perched on a rooftop overlooking a metropolitan area, Bridges and his band performed the mournful song, as the singer established his hope for a better feature through the moving lyrics. "Hoping for a life more sweeter, instead I’m just a story repeating," he crooned. "Why do I fear with skin dark as night? Can’t feel peace with those judging eyes."
