Common and John Legend have been invited to perform their powerful and award-winning single, “Glory,” at the Oscars on February 22nd.
I mean, that’s really all that needs to be said. Common is performing at the Oscars. 20+ years into his career. Amazing. You won’t want to miss that on 2/22 on ABC at 6pm.
I don’t even need to tell you, but the honorable Common is on fire right now. Not that he wasn’t before, but thanks to his latest release, “Glory,” he’s now being exposed to a whole new audience. Considering the message of the song, and Common’s message in general, it’s truly a beautiful thing. He’s a great representative for Chicago — and Hip-Hop as a whole.
That being said, Com and John Legend have been tapped to perform their award-winning collabo “Glory” at the 57th Grammy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday, February 8th. If you’re not going to be in attendance (many of Chi’s industry greats will), then you can catch on CBS at 7p CST.
Is Common undefeated in 2015 at this point? He just got the Golden Globe on Sunday. He was nominated for an Oscar this week, and last night he took home a Critics Choice Movie Award for Best Song for his collaboration with John Legend on “Glory.” One week, two big wins. Sheesh.
Check out his acceptance speech above.
So in case you’re keeping score at home, in 2015, Common has been nominated and won a Golden Globe, nominated for a Grammy, and has just been nominated for an Oscar for Best Original Song for his collaboration with John Legend, “Glory,” from Selma.
We’re only 15 days in the new year, and I’d say Com is already having the best year ever. Seriously. I gotta tip my hat and give him a round of applause — very impressive. Common is truly A-list material.
The Academy Awards will air on Feb. 22nd on ABC. Best of luck.
Common phoned into Sway In The Morning this AM to chat with his make-believe-Wife, Heather B, about his Golden Globe win (!), being inspired by Martin Luther King Jr., and possible future plans alongside John Legend. And finally, is there a “Glory” remix on the way? Stay tuned, and congrats to Com yet again.
Fresh off the Golden Globe win last night, Common and John keep the synergy flowing with the official video for “Glory.” It appeared the whole world was talking about these two today, so they had a solid plan in tact with the video ready as the whole world was paying attention. Rollout win.
Another glorious day for “Glory.” Be sure to check out Selma, which is in theaters now.
Congrats are most definitely in order for Common and John Legend, who just took home a Golden Globe (!!!) for ‘Best Original Song’ for their collaboration on “Glory” from the movie Selma.
That’s a nice piece of hardware for the mantle. Congrats fellas. Well deserved.
Common recently sat down with Katie Couric for Yahoo Global News to talk about all of his current ventures, but mainly his role as James Bevel, the Civil Rights crusader, in the film Selma. Com also talks about the tragic death of Eric Garner, race relations in America, and what can be done to make a change going forward. Very enlightening. Check it out above.
Rapper, actor, philanthropist, reality TV show producer. Yes, Com adds another notch to his belt tonight (1/6) as he premieres his new show on SpikeTV. The show, Framework, is a look into the world of furniture rehabbing and a quest for the best who will win a purse of $100k.
Be sure to tune in to SpikeTV tonight for the premiere.
Com Sense and John Legend dropped by Good Morning America this morning to promote the movie Selma, and their single from the film, “Glory.” In the video above you can watch Common and John Legend in their glo early in the AM.
Also, fun fact: “Glory” was nominated for Best Original Song at Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards
