[NEW MUSIC ALERT] Angelique Kidjo, Bono from U2, and John Legend

Check this awesome video and song out from African artist Angelique. It also features vocals from Bono from U2 and R&B star John Legend. It's a take on Curtis Mayfield classic Soul stirring song "Move On Up". The video is very vibrant and while the star power is brought in by both Bono and John Legend, it's Angelique Kidjo that makes the song really go. Her vocals are raw and so true to the song.

This is Angelique Kidjo first video which features the dancers from the Broadway play FELA. Kidjo said:
The Musical and the song carry the same message of Joy and hope for the future of African and for the future of people everywhere.
I'm sure you would agree on the message of Joy and Hope. Check the video.
