Rapper and Oscar winner Common, reminisced about the time he performed the song 'Glory' - that they were nominated for, along with John Legend. Their peromance had made for one of most iconic and inspiring moments in Oscar history. There wasn't a single member in the audience who weren't at least close to shedding a few tears.
They had written song for the film 'Selma,' which highlighted the march in Selma that led to the 1965 Voting Rights Act. Holding his Oscar high, John had said, “We know that the voting rights act that they fought for 50 years ago is being compromised right now in this country today. The connection between Selma and the dissolution of the Voting Rights Act has been widely discussed since the film was released; far less common is what Legend moved on to next. We live in the most incarcerated country in the world. There are more men under correctional control today than were under slavery in 1850."
