If you haven’t heard John Legend and Common’s stirring collab “Glory,” you're in luck, because they brought the song to "Good Morning America" this morning (Jan. 5) to wake the country up from its literal and metaphorical slumber.
As Legend tickled the ivories and sang the resounding lyrics of future reverence (sounding just as good as the record, we might add), Common stood at the foot of the piano to reverberate his powerful verses. The two were backed by a timpani player, a four-piece string quartet, and three background singers for the live performance.
“Glory” is nominated for Best Original Song at the upcoming Golden Globe Awards, which will air on January 11th. Selma hits theaters across the country on January 9.
