Common - House of Blues - Sunset, Nobody's Smiling Tour

In the wake of the events that unfolded in Ferguson, Common performed in LA just hours after the announcement that triggered protests across the world on November 24th, 2014.  He simply wore a hoody as a nod to racial injustice and let his music communicate peace and love.  These photos are a small piece of the evening that included MC Lyte, Queen Latifah and Seal joining him on stage.  I could not have imagined spending such an imperfect day in American history with a greater soul than COMMON.
