Need some chicken noodle soup for the soul today? This may be it…

Old G.O.O.D. Music brothers Common and John Legend come together for “Glory.” Holding 2014’s Ferguson protestors up alongside Rosa Parks’ Birmingham, Alabama bus incident and subsequent boycott (59 years ago this week), this uplifting song is about change, and the unseen glory in the act of coming together as people against oppression.

The soulful song is an inclusion on the Selma, soundtrack. The December 25 film portrays Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s 1965 marching in Selma, Alabama. The march would ultimately lead President Lyndon B. Johnson to signing Voting Rights Act of 1965. The film stars David Oyelowo (as Dr. King), Oprah Winfrey, Giovanni Ribisi, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Common, and Tim Roth, among others.
