John Legend & Common “Glory”

With protests in Ferguson and New York City drawing many comparisons to Selma, it is only appropriate that a song from the upcoming Martin Luther King biopic strikes home. Common said of “Glory” that “the mission was to create a song that both captured the spirit of the people of the civil rights movement and connected that journey to what is going on in America today – so much has changed and so much still needs to change.” This is captured in Common’s simultaneously insightful and inspirational verses and John Legend‘s soulful chorus.
