“Recently John and I also got to go to Selma and perform for a passing fancy bridge that Dr. king therefore the people of the civil legal rights movement marched on… this connection is currently symbolic for modification. The spirit of the connection transcends battle, gender, religion, intimate orientation, and social status… this connection had been built on hope, welded with compassion, and elevated by love for many people,” typical stated in his message, describing the message of ‘Glory’.
