(WISH) – The Texas mom who became an internet sensation for wearing a Chewbacca mask is trending this morning for another reason.

Candace Payne, also known as “Chewbacca Mom,” posted a video this weekend on Facebook of her playing the piano and singing in honor of Thursday night’s shooting in Dallas, which left five police officers dead and seven wounded.

In the video she sings, “Heal the World,” which was recorded by Michael Jackson in 1991.

Before she started singing, she said a few words about how she was feeling in the wake of the tragedy.

Payne recorded the video from her home in Grand Prairie, Texas, about 30 minutes outside of Dallas.

The video has already been viewed 2.5 million times.
