Listen to John Legend: Preach. In case you missed it, I had the opportunity to interview, Newly anointed Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony award winner and multi-platinum singer-songwriter John Legend. He has a powerful song and music video for his new single “Preach”.
The song is John’s way of addressing the many social issues in America today: School shootings, children being separated from parents at the border, law enforcement’s aggressive tactics toward African-Americans during traffic stops and more. The video was directed by Dominique DeLeon. Preach inspires us all to take action, to practice what we preach. Change begins with us.
“The idea behind the song is that sometimes we can get so frustrated by the news and what’s going on and there’s this scatter going on in ourselves. Do we become apathetic? Do we become engaged? Do we just talk about it, or do we do something?” -John Legend
