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

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."

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