The full half-hour interview centers around discussions of family, faith and even the public’s perception of Clinton.
The clip also includes a mid-interview break for Blige to memorably break out into a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “American Skin (41 Shots)” to Clinton, which was motivated by the pair’s discussion of police brutality and Black Lives Matter.
After finishing singing, Blige challenged Clinton with a call to action.
“This is how I believe people feel and I wanted to share that with you because I just want to know where do we go from here? What do we do?”
Clinton, for her part, had an emotional response.
“I have been so heartbroken over what’s been going on because it’s fundamentally at odds with, and wrong, that African-American parents have to sit their children down and deliver the message you just sang: ‘Be Careful,’ and yet we still have so many terrible deaths,” she said.
“I particularly want white people to understand what’s that like and feel like they must be part of the solution, do better training and work with our place — like the song said ‘a gun, a knife, or wallet.'”
