Common & John Legend are Oscar Winners.
How glorious it is, huh? They just performed “Glory” at the Oscars and brought the celebs in attendance to tears and to their feet. How cool was it with all of the people behind them? Somethin’ just as powerful and unique compared to their recent close of the Grammys.
Soon after, they were announced as the winners of Best Original Song and gave as powerful a speech as the performance. ICYMI… watch both below.
"…We say that Selma is now, because the struggle for justice is right now… We know that the Voting Rights Act that they fought for 50 years ago is being compromised right now in this country today. We know that right now, the struggle for freedom and justice is real. We live in the most incarcerated country in the world. There are more black men under correctional control today then were under slavery in 1850.” thanks for giving your moment to something greater fellas, HUGE congratulations @johnlegend @common
On a much lighter note, here’s Common leaving Oprah hanging, haha!
