Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Featuring spirited covers of Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes' "Wake Up Everybody," Baby Huey & the Baby Sitters' "Hard Times," and Donny Hathaway's "Little Ghetto Boy" -- socially conscious soul cult classics and hits of the `60s and `70s -- Wake Up! is John Legend's fourth proper studio album. Backed throughout by the Roots, Wake Up! also features a Legend original, the uplifting "Shine."

Clash (magazine) - "[A] soulful reimagining of 60's and 70's urban protest songs....The concept of political awareness reigns supreme..."
