John Legend, generally known for his soulful ballads tickling the ivories has released a song that gets a little more political. The nation is still abuzz with the grand juries not indicting the white police officers involved in the case of Michael Brown and Eric Garner.
John Legend responded to the decision of the Garner Case with the following tweet:
I am stunned by the failure to indict Eric Garner’s killer.

The day after Legend released the song “Glory” from the soundtrack of the upcoming film “Selma” about the black voting rights in 1965. You can listen to the song below.
This certainly isn’t the first time a musician has gone political about their views, but what about when John Legend gets political? What do you think about John Legend getting more involved with the affairs of the United States? Should more artists be writing music and discussing the current events.
