“We had Common, Yolanda Adams, Keira Sheard, The Roots were the back up band. The Obamas picked a lot of the people and De La Soul came through and ripped it. It was just a great feeling. It’s called Love and Happiness because that’s what you felt in the room. They changed the perception of what leadership looked like,” Hill said.
