Since his death, tens of thousands of protesters have taken to the streets across America with peaceful demonstrations against police killings of black people.

The peaceful protests were also overshadowed by unrest that ravaged cities from Philadelphia to Los Angeles and flared near the White House.

Singer Lulu, who is known for hit single Shout, said: "This is all our fight. Stop the killing of our sons and our brothers. We are one. Justice for George Floyd. Speak up."
