“The Believer” F. Anthony Hamilton (Live At BET Honors) (Video)

    When Common’s not throwing verbal darts at other MCs on his new album, he’s using The Dreamer/The Believer to spit socially/politically heavy bars. That’s especially true on the “The Believer,” which on the record features soaring guest vocals from John Legend. But it appears that he couldn’t make it to the BET Honors show last night, so Com instead linked with soul-man Anthony Hamilton to handle the hook. He’s more than capable of belting out the lyrics, of course, and he and Com even got some help from a choir to further push the performance along. If you’re in need of some inspiration this morning, look no further. Watch the performance below.
