Congratulations to Robert Glasper, Lalah Hathaway and Malcolm Jamal Warner for their wonderful rendition of Stevie Wonder’s “Jesus Children of America” off of the Robert Glasper Experiment album, “Black Radio 2”. Their version, “Jesus Children” won in the Grammy category for Best Traditional R&B Performance. Check it out below! Have you listened to this album yet? If not, you can check out The Robert Glasper Experiment here. This album and it’s predecessor, “Black Radio”, are both classics and breathes new life into the Jazz genre. Both are available on iTunes. Keep on supporting this music and let the masses know! If you have listened to the Robert Glasper Experiment, what do you think of them and their effect on the Jazz world today?
Singer, songwriter and activist, John Legend and Rap artist and poet, Common captured the Golden Globe for Best Original Song with “Glory” from the motion picture Selma last night. Being a long-time, mega fan of both of these artists, I was so proud watching the broadcast last night when their win was announced. Both are extremely talented and so active in the community, so I would like to honor them here on Soulster Vibes. Legend and Common’s “Glory” is an example of what music can do and how it can reach and influence the masses. What an awesome and powerful song. It speaks so much to the turmoil, division and unity of today as well as during the Civil Rights Movement as being one in the same. See their powerful acceptance speech here and the “Glory” video (with words) below. Soak it in people and share your thoughts of the song and this wonderful moment in music.
