Like so many Black women, she was an essential worker, an emergency medical technician, the kind of first responder we depend on to save lives during this ongoing pandemic," Legend wrote in an op-ed for Entertainment Weekly.
The dream ended on March 13 when Louisville Metro Police officers barged into Taylor's apartment and fired 20 shots, killing the Black EMT worker.
As Legend described in his essay, Taylor's boyfriend fired his gun when he first thought somebody broke into the house.
But in the end, Kenneth Walker watched in agony as he was unable to save his girlfriend.
Walker was then arrested and charged with attempted murder for allegedly shooting one of the officers in the leg, according to the Courier Journal.
