So, using musical talents for the advancement of a people/ nation is, undoubtedly, important. "Wake Up," a collabo by John Legend, The Roots, Melanie Fiona, and Common (whom I love!) is the type of song that we all need to hear. Sadly, songs with a "stand up, be about something positive, make a change" messages aren't the most popular. But these are exactly the types of songs that should be on replay, both in our heads and on the radio/ iPod/ TV.
