Chewbacca Mom Covers Michael Jackson's 'Heal The World'

Chewbacca Mom

(Radio.com) Chewbacca Mom aka Candace Payne rose to fame for her infectious laugh and her ability to find joy in life's little moments. But, as Payne readily admitted on Facebook, finding joy becomes much harder in the wake of the recent unrest.

"I really don't know what else to say other than I've been spreading joy and I've been hoping to do that, but I've found myself the last couple days being silent because I've been so sad and so hurt by what's going on," she said in a video she shared on Facebook June 9th.

Even though piano isn't her first instrument, Payne asked viewers to bear with her as she played and sang lyrics she felt were important. She followed by playing Michael Jackson's "Heal the World (Make It a Better Place)," her voice brimming with emotion.

She ended her song by advocating for everyone to come together in a peaceful way. "Make a better place, y'all," she said. "Fill it with joy, not hate. Come on." Check it out here.
