Jackson has called upon all celebrities to sing the 'I Can't Breathe' song

On Saturday (Dec 13th), the Hollywood star uploaded a video via Facebook, in which he called upon all celebs who "poured ice water" on their heads to sing the same song sung by many during demonstrations held in New York to protest the recent killings of unarmed black men by white police officers.

"All you celebrities out there who poured ice water on your head, here's a chance to do something else," he says in the clip. "I challenge all of you to sing the We Ain't Gonna Stop Till People are Free song."

The song was first sung after a New York City grand jury issued a verdict on Dec. 3 not to take a white police officer to trial after killing Eric Garner, 43, who is a father of six, by putting an illegal chokehold on him while he was being arrested.

During the incident, Garner can be heard saying "I can't breathe" multiple times.

The lyrics to the song Jackson is referencing are:

I can hear my neighbor crying, 'I can't breathe'

Now I'm in a struggle and I can't leave

Calling out the violence of the racist police

We ain't gonna stop till people are free

We ain't gonna stop till people are free

"Come on," Jackson says at the end of the clip. "Sing it out."
