John Legend – Woke Up This Morning

John Legend provides his interpretation of SNCC Freedom Singers’ powerful civil rights song, that was a source of inspiration for men and women standing up against injustice.

In a pivotal moment in history, the words of singers directed the masses to move forward. “I’m walking and talking with my mind/stayed on freedom/Hallelu, Hallelu, Hallelujah,” are lyrics crooned by Legend and chanted by protesters.

Legend joins Joss Stone, Anthony Hamilton, Wyclef Jean, The Roots, Richie Havens, and others on the ‘Soundtrack for a Revolution’ film.

The ‘Soundtrack for a Revolution’ is available for purchase at online retailers.
