First Listen: John Legend sings of Freedom for Ukraine

(April 8, 2022) At this year’s Grammy Awards, Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky gave a powerful speech to the attendees about the plight of his country, and it was followed by an equally powerful new song from singer and songwriter John Legend.

“Free” is a timeless song about the cry for freedom from oppressors, from the Egyptians in the Bible to the Russians today.

That there is a God
And I’m just sayin’, Lord
Rain down, freedom
Rain down, ’til we’re all
Free

It is a simply arranged (just voice and piano) and timely song about a tragedy that besets our brothers and sisters thousands of miles away, and it comes at the right time. Check out “Free” below.
