What's Your Favorite Song This Week?

Apr 8, 2015

This week's survey has closed. Thanks and follow us on Twitter (or check back later) for more!

On any given week there's usually a new (or fairly recent) song I can't stop listening to. And sometimes, if it's a really, really good cut, I'm still listening to it, nonstop, weeks later.

"We share your concern about its potentially devastating effects on the lives of transgender as well as gay, lesbian, bisexual, and queer youth."

The man who filmed a white police officer in South Carolina shooting an unarmed black man as he was running away says he turned over the video to Walter Scott's family because it deserved to know the truth.

"I thought about his position, their situation. ... If I were to have a family member that would happen [to], I would like to know the truth," Feidin Santana told NBC News.
