Come The F*ck In John Legend!
Leave it to John Legend to sing me into a damn frenzy wit this good ole Negro Spirtual. The song, Roll Jordan Roll, is from the soundtrack for, 12 Years A Slave, starring Chiwetel Ejiofor. The movie is based on life experiences of Solomon Northup, a free black man born in pre-civil war America in New York, the movie shows the trials and tribulations that he endured after he was tricked and sold into slavery for 12 years. The Steve McQueen directed film, ‘12 Years a Slave,’ is currently showing in select theaters.
The soundtrack, “Music From and Inspired by 12 Years a Slave” can be purchased through iTunes on November 5 and in stores on November 19. The 16-track compilation includes songs from Legend, Hans Zimmer, Alicia Keys, and Alabama Shakes.
I am so downloading this album John Legend took me back to my TUGVCC and RVC days!
