Congratulations to John Legend and Common! The singer and rapper took home the coveted golden statuette for Best Original Song for ‘Glory’ from ‘Selma’ at the 2015 Golden Globe Awards tonight (Jan. 11).

The pair won for ‘Glory,’ the uplifting track from the inspirational, Civil Rights-centric movie. And as motivational as their song is, the duo’s acceptance speech was equally as emotional, as Common and Legend compared the leaders of the Civil Rights movement of the ’60s to those who are still fighting for equality in our country today — particularly in regards to the recent protests in light of Ferguson and the murder of Eric Garner.

Listen to ‘Glory’ in all of its, well, glory (we couldn’t resist!) in the video below. And congratulations again to John Legend and Common!
