R&B legend Mary J. Blige sat down with Hillary Clinton for an intimate, revealing one-on-one conversation. They discussed police brutality and black lives matter among other topics. Blige sings Bruce Springsteen's "American Skin" at one point during their discussion on police-issues in the country. The song was written in 1999 after police shot and killed 23-year-old Guinean immigrant Amadou Diallo in New York. Interviewer and interviewee got emotional during the conversation, clasping hands and letting tears form. After Blige sings, Hillary gives a lengthy answer on how she has pledged to heal the racial divide in America. "I think you should sing in every interview that you do. It's so emotionally powerful, Mary," Hillary said.
