Fresh off their win for Best Original Song at the Golden Globes, John Legend and Common debut the music video for their collaboration, “Glory,” off the Selma soundtrack. In between powerful scenes from the civil rights drama starring David Oyelowo, Oprah Winfrey, and Common himself, the Chicago MC preaches to the people, while Mr. Legend plays piano.
“Selma has awakened my humanity,” said Common during his acceptance speech on Sunday. “We look to the future and we want to create a better world. Now is our time to change the world. Selma is now.”
“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,” added John.
On Thursday, they will find out if they are nominated for an Oscar when the Academy Awards nominations are announced.
