Common and John Legend made waves last night when they brought home a golden globe for “Glory” — their contribution to the Award winning film, Selma. Winning Best Original Song from a motion picture, the fellas gracefully walked up onstage and spoke on behalf of the powerful song, “Glory.” Comm had some particularly moving words:

“The first day I stepped on the set of ‘Selma’ I began to feel like this was bigger than a movie,” Common said during his acceptance speech. “As I got to know the people of the Civil Rights Movement, I realized I am the hopeful black woman who was denied her right to vote. I am the caring white supporter killed on the front lines of freedom. I am the unarmed black kid who maybe needed a hand, but instead was given a bullet. I am the two fallen police officers murdered in the line of duty. ‘Selma’ has awakened my humanity.”
