Solange Knowles took to Instagram to share a short cover of Syreeta Wright's classic, 1972 track "Black Maybe," written by Stevie Wonder; the post is in response to the recent murders of two unarmed black men by police, Alton Sterling and Philando Castile.

Knowles included a gorgeous, tragic note about the killings:

Been singing Syreeta's 'Black Maybe' over and over again trying to comfort my weary heart... But what is comfort when the images of slain black bodies left to bleed, is sketched into your being...over and over again."

Hear the original Syreeta tune below.
