John Legend - Sun Comes Up

Finding John Legend songs to post is easy. The hard part comes when you have got to decide which song to post. Luckily, I have friends who like to throw great Jingle Jams my way.

While I would have loved to go forth with one of Legend's more well known tracks, I figured we would dig deep today, not that I did much digging. I figure that most of you know the basic routine of "Save Room", "Ordinary People" and "Green Light" so maybe a little something you have not heard from him might excite you.

While John Legend has 4 albums to his name, including his most recent collaborative effort with The Roots, he does quite a bit of work behind the scenes and has an expansive collection of singles and covers. In fact, he has released a couple of live albums as well.

Today, we are going to get into one of his live collections, all of which are quite impressive. He recorded "Sun Comes Up" in 2003 with a small venue feel to it. I hope you enjoy it. Included in that performance was also his cover of Nina Simone - Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood. While it cannot be compared to the original, it is epic to say the least.
