Teddy Pendergrass gave us a beautiful song in the 70s called “Wake Up Everybody” that has not been revisited in such a soulful way until now. John Legend, Common and Melanie Fiona breathe new direction and life into the track. But the two have also opened up a lot of the 60s and 70s classics on a new album entitled “Wake Up Everybody” dusted them off and made them their own.
The album will be out soon, but they have given a first sneak hear through People magazine. The mix of Melanie Fiona and John Legend is an acquired taste, but both are great artists that we love and somehow they make it work. Check it out here.
