    (April 8, 2022) At this year's Grammy Awards, Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky gave a powerful speech to the attendees about the plight of his country, and it was followed by an equally powerful new song from singer and songwriter John Legend.

    "Free" is a timeless song about the cry for freedom from oppressors, from the Egyptians in the Bible to the Russians today.

    That there is a God
    And I'm just sayin', Lord
    Rain down, freedom
    Rain down, 'til we're all
    Free

    It is a simply arranged (just voice and piano) and timely song about a tragedy that besets our brothers and sisters thousands of miles away, and it comes at the right time. Check out "Free" below.
