Common & John Legend “Glory” on GMA

The first Monday work day of the new year started off in inspiring fashion today as Common and John Legend hit Good Morning America with the first ever performance of “Glory”, their contribution to the new ‘Selma’ movie.

The longtime friends and collaborators suited up for the occasion and brought a mini-orchestra along that added another level to the performance. It was beautiful, with Legend on the keys as well and Common even vibing to the instrumentation when he wasn’t rapping. A feel-good, empowering performance under a good setting with New Yorkers looking on behind them.
