This track is going to be featured in the upcoming film Selma that is coming out on Christmas Day but, in light of recent events, it makes sense that it’s being released now.

Heralding the past and the future of the civil rights protest movement, this epic track oozes inspiration from beginning to end.  John Legend’s piano and vocals are teamed with an orchestral production add a more timeless and grandiose feel to the song.  Common, of course, lays down some poignant lyrics that advices all those who are on the verge of despair that it will pay to keep moving forward.
