Hands down the most moving part of Sunday's Oscars was the back-to-back performance and winning speech by Common and John Legend of their Selma's newly crowned Best Original Song "Glory." Although he didn't take the stage, once-Indy resident Rhymefest snagged an Oscar for that track, too, as a co-writer. Ambrosia For Heads breaks down his win here.  See the performance and speech below, via Vulture. 



"There are more black men under correctional control than there were under slavery in 1850. When people are marching with our song, we want to tell you we see you, we love you and march on," John Legend said.
