Pharrell Subtly Asks For Justice During 'The Voice' Live Performance

As unrest in Ferguson continues, Pharrell Williams changes the lyrics to Louis Armstrong's "What A Wonderful World."

Posted on

If you've watched "The Voice" at all this season, you know that Pharrell stands up for what he believes in.

But so far, that's only meant talented performers.

Tuesday night, as the protests in Ferguson continued, Pharrell and his remaining two team members sang "What A Wonderful World."

And he changed the lyrics to the last verse.

"I see trees of green,

Red roses, too.

And I see them bloom

From me and you.

And I think to myself...

We need justice to unfurl.

Then I can think to myself

What a wonderful world."

He later tweeted a similar message:

As we enter into the holiday season, all I wish for is a wonderful world where equality reigns supreme.
