Common Ft Will.I.Am - A Dream

I watched ‘Freedom Writers’ for what may possibly be the 10th time, recently. I can’t remember when or where I first watched this film but it stuck with me from the first viewing. This song is off the official soundtrack which I downloaded.

Try and watch the film as soon as you can or at least add it to your ‘must watch’ list.
