ReImagined At Home: Keedron Bryant Powerfully Interprets John Legend’s Love Song “Ordinary People”
In the wake of George Floyd’s killing, a then-12-year-old Keedron Bryant emerged out of nowhere with "I Just Wanna Live," a plea for mercy in the midst of police violence. (Even Barack Obama praised its poignancy.) But Bryant—now 13—is a skilled interpreter, too, as evidenced by this commanding take on John Legend’s 2004 hit "Ordinary People," about fumbling through a relationship and righting wrongs.
Back in 2006, at the 48th GRAMMY Awards, "Ordinary People" was nominated for Song Of The Year, Best R&B Song and Best Male R&B Vocal Performance, winning in the latter category.
