Chloe x Halle Honor George Floyd and Breonna Taylor During NFL Kickoff Performance


Chloe x Halle honored George Floyd and Breonna Taylor during their rendition of the national anthem.


For the NFL season kickoff on Sept. 10, the sisters took part in a pre-recorded performance, with Chloe wearing a t-shirt featuring a picture of Taylor and the phrase "Say Her Name" emblazoned across the chest.


The artists were praised on social media for using this moment to highlight the Black Lives Matter movement and their continued pursuit of justice for Taylor and Floyd.


It's been nearly six months since Taylor was fatally shot by police officers executing a no-knock search warrant in her Kentucky home.


Floyd's death, however, led to the arrests and indictment of the four police officers involved.


Players are now permitted to kneel during the national anthem, an act of protest against police brutality and racial inequality first popularized by Colin Kaepernick in 2016.
