Two superstars, one stage, one amazing cause! P!nk and John Legend performed a stunning rendition of ‘Someday We’ll All Be Free’ at the Shining A Light Concert, and it was one of the most breathtaking moments of the entire night.
Who has a more incredible voice than P!nk? The (now blonde) songstress teamed up with the equally incredible John Legend for an unforgettable performance of the moving “Someday We’ll All Be Free.” At the Shining A Light: A Concert For Progress On Race In America, held on November 20, their voices were heard loud and clear.
With P!nk at the microphone, and John at the piano, the two created a stunning duet of the inspirational Donny Hathaway song from 1973. An illuminated tower on stage was surrounded by soaring peace doves, making this performance just as beautiful as the singers’ voices. What a stunning sight! The gorgeous, heartfelt performance had the audience, including John’s wife Chrissy Teigan, tearing up. He punctuated the beautiful song by saying “I believe in the words of that song, that somedey we’ll all be free. But we need to hold on tight as the world spins around us.”
“Someday We’ll All Be Free” is an inspirational song widely interpreted as being about black rights, the lyrics about Donny’s struggles and plight. Just look at these lyrics: “Take it from me, someday we’ll all be free / Hey, just wait and see, some day we’ll all be free, yeah.” P!nk and John actually weren’t the only people to perform this song at the concert; Alicia Keys gave us an amazing version as well!
The Shining A Light concert is an incredible event in which artists of all races and backgrounds come together for fabulous duets, in order to raise funding for organizations and individuals that are working toward racial justice and equality, and eliminating bias. It’s an incredible event that’s brought so many stars together for such a good cause!
