    Chewbacca Mom Candace Payne has channeled Michael Jackson in response to last week's fatal shootings of police officers in Dallas. 

    Payne posted a video on Facebook during the weekend of her cover of Michael Jackson's "Heal the World." 

    Payne lives about a half-hour from Dallas in Grand Prairie, Texas. 

    "I've been spreading joy and I've been hoping to do that, but I found myself the last couple of days being silent because I've been so sad and so hurt by what's going on," said Payne.
