Eric Garner’s Family Releases Tribute Song, “This Ends Today”

“Life should be protected if justice is real.”

Eric Garner's family has taken to song to honor the late husband and father of six children who was fatally placed in a chokehold by NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo this past July. Their tribute, "This Ends Today," is led by Garner's daughter, Erica, who staged a "die-in" at the site in Staten Island where her father was killed. It's a sobering R&B track with Erica flexing her soulful voice on the chorus, "Who is the man with the strength to choose / When the rest refuse / I say this ends today." She's joined by relative Steven Flagg who raps, dropping lines like, "Life should be protected if justice is real." Listen below and revisit scenes from protests across the country of the no indictment verdict.
