John Legend & Stephen Colbert Sing "America The Beautiful" Duet On The Late Show

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Ah, some more late night goodness right here. The First Lady, Michelle Obama, was a guest on the The Late Show with Stephen Colbert earlier this evening, and Colbert and the show’s other guest, John Legend, put something special together in her honor. With some help from Jon Batiste on his harmonaboard, Colbert and Legend give us this performance of “America The Beautiful.” Grammy award winning Stephen Colbert holds a note better than I expected. Under that clip, John Legend speaks to his efforts in ending mass incarceration with the Free America campaign. A very real, and very worthy cause that you can find out more about here.
