Ledisi and Robert Glasper shine on "Apollo" soundtrack song

They’re two of the most talented and influential artists of our time. And now they’ve come together in a song that pays honor to the incredible Apollo Theater in New York.

HBO is now featuring the documentary The Apollo, about the famed theater, and the soundtrack for the feature is just as impressive. It features performances by such notables as Gladys Knight and the Pips, James Brown and Aretha Franklin. And it also includes a new song by modern music royalty Robert Glasper and Ledisi. An big, emotional ballad, it is the synthesis of two artists at the peak of their game.
