John Legend & Common – Glory

John Legend and Common follow-up their win for “Best Original Song” for their duet ‘Glory’ during Sunday night’s Golden Globe Awards by releasing a visual for the powerful civil rights record, which is taken from the film, Selma.

Along with clips of Legend and Common performing, the video showcases compelling scenes from the movie.

"The first day I stepped on the set of 'Selma' I began to feel like this was bigger than a movie," Common said during his acceptance speech on Sunday. "As I got to know the people of the Civil Rights Movement, I realized I am the hopeful black woman who was denied her right to vote. I am the caring white supporter killed on the front lines of freedom. I am the unarmed black kid who maybe needed a hand, but instead was given a bullet. I am the two fallen police officers murdered in the line of duty. 'Selma' has awakened my humanity."

Legend added: “We still are in solidarity with those that are out there fighting for justice right now and we’re so grateful to write this song hopefully as an inspiration to them.”

Hopefully this Golden Globe win will lead to an Oscar nomination, and a possible win.
