Celisse Flies Free with Livestream: She’s been playing guitar for Lizzo, she released an incredibly powerful single called “Freedom” last year, and now singer, songwriter and guitarist Celisse is performing a live streamed show.

“Freedom” was written in 2016 after the deaths of Philando Castillo and Alton Sterling within 24 hours of each other.

“Now, almost four years later, too little has been done and the story remains the same,” Henderson said in a statement. “With the horrific and unjust killings of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd and Tony McDade weighing heavily on our hearts and minds, it is time to release ‘FREEDOM’ as a rallying cry and a call to action to stand up and fight for our freedom.”

Celisse has also performed with Melissa Etheridge, Joss Stone, PHISH, Macy Gray and Mariah Carey, but this gig is all about her.

Celisse Flies Free with Livestream: Tune in at 5 p.m. PT on Tuesday, May 11 via Twitch.
