Common Duets With Andra Day At Oscars


Common collaborated with Andra Day for a moving performance at the 2018 Oscars. They performed a duet of "Stand Up for Something," which was featured in the biopic film Marshall.

Prior to the performance the duo was introduced by Dave Chappelle, who offered his sentiments on Thurgood Marshall. Chappelle said of Justice Marshall, he was a "true Civil Rights legend and a personal hero of mine, along with other Americans who abandon comfortable circumstances and take on issues bigger than themselves."

Common opened the performance with a spoken word rhyme. The rapper started off with "On Oscar night, this is the dream we tell/ A land where dreamers live and freedom dwells/ Immigrants get the benefits; we put up monuments for the feminists/ Tell the NRA they in God's way."
