John Legend led the “soul train” at BET’s Saving Our Selves: A BET COVID-19 Relief Effort special on Wednesday (April 22) night.
Dressed in a suave suit, yellow-tinted sunglasses and, yes, a full afro, the EGOT member delivered his brand-new tropical tune “Bigger Love,” as a group of dancers (virtually) grooved to the happy melody.
“We got a one-way ticket love/ We ain’t going no place but up/ Nothing can stop this/ No one can top us/ We got a bigger love,” he sang, providing the uplifting message of love that we all need right now.
The two-hour broadcast also featured performances by Alicia Keys, Kirk Franklin, Fantasia, Jonathan McReynolds, Kelly Price, Tasha Cobbs, Le’Andria Johnson, Melvin Crispell III, Usher, Jhene Aiko, Chloe X Halle, CeeLo Green, H.E.R., Ella Mai, Jermaine Dupri, Ludacris, Swae Lee, Tyrese Gibson, Buju Banton, DJ D-Nice, SiR, D Smoke and Charlie Wilson.
