Featured Music Friday: Darkness and Light

Share

In his fifth studio album, “Darkness and Light,” R&B singer-songwriter, John Legend, tackles love, fatherhood, and politics, through a soulful lens, with vocals smooth as velvet. In “Right By You (for Luna)” Legend sings to his newborn daughter, and imagines what joys and sorrows she will face in this world. In “I Know Better,” “Penthouse Floor,” and “Marching Into the Dark,” Legend takes on the role of activist once again (Legend’s song “Glory” from the film “Selma” won him the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 2015), with lyrics about police brutality, individual responsibility, and the strength of the Black community. “Darkness and Light” is filled with life, love, and the promise of a brighter future.
