Black History Month song titled Optimistic by August Greene featuring Brandy on Music-Television

Here is some music that is incredibly positive and cooking. It's a cover of the song titled Optimistic,  originally recorded by Sounds of Blackness.

The rapper known as Common along with keyboardist Robert Glasper, drummer Karriem Riggins and bassist Burniss Travis make up a fantastic jazz influenced soul band known as August Greene.
