Jennifer Hudson Performs ” A Change Gonna To Come ” @ Democratic National Convention



Jennifer Hudson closed out the third night of the #DNC with a song that has a long history in politics. On the third night of the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday, Jennifer Hudson  performed Sam Cooke’s legendary song ” A Change Gonna To Come “


Cooke wrote “A Change” months before his death, and the year before the Selma to Montgomery marches in 1965. A 2015 New Yorker essay marking the song’s 50th anniversary noted the correspondence to Selma’s “Bloody Sunday”: “Then I go to my brother, and I say, ‘Brother, help me please,’” Cooke sang. “But he winds up knockin’ me back down on my knees.”
