iFootage... John Legend x The Roots - Shine (Studio Performance)

"SoulCulture UK exclusive: John Legend & The Roots Perform "Shine" Live In Studio. Taken from the forthcoming album Wake Up! which features soulful music from the 60's and 70's all with an underlying theme of awareness, engagement and consciousness. "Shine" is the one original composition on the album. John Legend's song "Shine," which is featured in Academy Award-winning director Davis Guggenheim's upcoming documentary film Waiting for Superman. The song, a "Stevie-Wonder-meets-gospel" stunner, clearly demonstrates the strengths of this specific group of musicians. Wake Up! blends Legend's expressive, thoughtful vocal interpretations with an element of funk that only The Roots can provide." - Soul Culture Media

#Shouts to Soulculture for shooting this over

Thank God for John Legend's life because I really dunno what that 'Evolver' album was all about! However this album sounds so good already from the records we've heard so far, it's good to know Mr. Legend isn't fading away

John Legend & The Roots - Wake Up is out in the US on September 21st
