“Glory” from Selma

Here is the song that won the Oscar for best original song this year: “Glory” by John Legend and Common.

This is a great emotional song about the civil rights movement from Selma. 

“We wrote this song for a film that was based on events that were 50 years ago, but we say that Selma is now because the struggle for justice is right now,” Legend said in his acceptance speech. “We live in the most incarcerated country in the world. There are more black men under correctional control today than were under slavery in 1850. When people are marching with our song, we want to tell you, ‘We are with you. We see you. We love you. And march on.'”
