This past weekend, The Legendary Roots crew were among the performers for the 41st NAACP Image Awards. Above, watch as they collab with John Legend for their rendition of Harold Melvin and The Blue Notes' "Wake Up Everybody" (A Teddy P tribute, I'm sure). Perhaps this is a preview of the upcoming John Legend album, Wake Up Sessions, that will be entirely produced by The Roots and is said to drop sometime this year. After the jump check out a performance from Wyclef Jean, Keri Hilson, and Carlos Santana.

    Keri Hilson sounded off key and looked out of place. The Haitian musicians were AMAZING. I wanna download this song!!!

  • That appears wonderful yet i am still not too sure that I prefer it. Anyhow will look further into it and decide for myself! 🙂
