After Bono has changed it himself to "early evening".

Guess that's about the same as "late afternoon".

I normally don't much care for John Legend but I liked this. Better than the C+C Music Factory cover anyway

And as for the vocal, Bono can't even sing it like Bono anymore, those days are sadly gone. Legend can at least hit the notes in the chorus, I miss that.

Check out any Vertigo tour preformance of it especily the 5th leg Bono never sung it better. And not to get down on Legend (I do like how he made it his own) but clearly hiting those notes in 50% of full voice is a lot easier then Bono belting the crap out with 150% of his voice which he did on the Vertigo tour and now I love pride live wich I never thought would happen.

I thought the way John was singing it was totally appropriate for this version. No way he'd ever try to sing it like Bono, that would be ridiculous. His version has a special feeling to it and I like that.

CTU2Fan, thanks for the upload!!!

I like it

I haven't been as moved by that song in years.

And, lest we forget, that Martin Luther King, Jr. fellow......

Well he was an amazing individual.

Understatement I know, but damn that man was beautiful. Beautiful in every way.

Actually I think John Legend mastered this song.

He does things that Bono has never done and made it more touching and spiritual without pomp and circumstance.

one of the best U2 covers I've seen. I don't get why some people were making negative comments (not here on interference, but on @U2)
