Common Performed At The White House for the NPR Tiny Desk Concert Series

by

Common delivered some spoken word truths this week as part of President Obama’s inaugural ‘South By South Lawn’ festival. The “Glory” rapper also met up with NPR to film the very first White House Tiny Desk Concert where he performed songs that provided important messages to the viewer.
Within this short 20-minute concert, Commons was able to touch grounds on the racial battle Black Americans are still facing, feminism and lastly, a song about his father who had passed away to cancer in 2014.
This is a MUST WATCH.

John Legend ft. Common: Glory

by

The timing could not have been better for John Legend and Common to release their new single, ‘Glory’.
Recorded exclusively for new movie, ‘Selma’, the film centers on the Martin Luther King Jr.-led civil rights marches that went down in 1965.
‘Glory’ is definitely an uplifting contribution to not only the movie itself, but also everything that is going on in the world right now.

A new annual music festival is coming to Australia’s East Coast in October, despite the recent troubles that the festival scene has had within the past few months.

Maybe SoulFest will be the one to prove us all wrong. Who knows?

Are you willing to take that risk?
