“Chewbacca mom” Candace Payne is back and she’s singing Michael Jackson’s “Heal the World” in the wake of the Dallas shooting tragedy.

Payne recorded herself singing in a Facebook video she posted on Saturday. It had more than 16,000 shares as of Saturday night.

The Texas mother explained in the video that she was 30 minutes from the shooting – but thousands of miles from identifying with the “pain being felt by the whole world.”

“Heal the world,” she sings. “Make it a better place, for you and for me and the entire human race.”

Twelve officers were shot — five are dead and seven injured — after a protest held in downtown Dallas. The protests were in response to the deadly officer-involved shootings in Louisiana and Minnesota.

Payne became an internet sensation after uploading a video of herself laughing while wearing a Chewbacca mask back in May. The million received millions of views.
