Ingram, James - Someday We'll All Be Free Lyrics

Hang onto the world as it spins around.
Just don't let the spin get you down.
Things are moving fast.
Hold on tight and you will last.

Keep your self-respect your manly pride
Get yourself in gear, keep your stride.
Never mind your fears, never mind
Brighter days will soon be here.

Just wait and see someday we'll all be free, yeah

Keep on walking tall, hold you head up high.
Lay your dreams right up to the sky.
Sing your greatest songs, your greatest songs.
And you'll keep growing, you'll keep growing on.

Take it from me, someday we'll all be free, yeah
And it won't be long
Take it from me, someday we'll all be free, yeah

Take it from me, someday we'll see
We'll all be free
Take it from me, someday we'll see
Take it from me, someday we'll see
Take it from me

    I'm so deeply touched by the sound of James voice while he sings this beautiful song of the late Donny Hathaway. It literally brings tears to my 😭 Someday we'll all be Free (South Africa)❤🙏 Two amazing voices are no longer with us..May they both RIH🙏

  9. Dallas Sniper

    Such a great rendition of the Donny Hathaway classic. I could see Brian McKnight singing this as well.



  11. Pamela Clary

    Wow i remember being a teenager and my mom had this song and I loved hearing it. So sad james is gone .



  13. Futuristic Concepts

    I love James Ingram's music. I do. I've been a fan since he first hooked up with Quincy Jones. But...when it comes to THIS song?
    Nobody and I mean NOBODY put their foot in it like Aretha. She sung that song so fiercely that it made you proud to be black and a part of the struggle against the greatest affliction ever known to mankind. Racism and Bigotry. The blood brothers of pure evil. Ya heard?

  14. Karabo swanz

    Rip James Ingram... M free today👌👏

  15. Jomar Reiter

    Very nice Voice.. I love your all song's so much. RIP idol. 😢😭

  16. mercy triumps

    Here is a one hour personal interview with James Ingram and Kevin Bond. He discusses his faith, family and career.

  17. Feisal Rahall

    Donnie Hathaway, Aretha, James Ingram, they all performed this song so wonderful. The cliche' is true, they just don't make music like this anymore. God bless....

  18. fullof faith

  30. MarkDRStern

    Today, January 29 2019, James Ingram died age 66. We lost what I believe was the greatest voice in Soul Music. No one truly dies as long as their name is repeated. James Ingram, sing on brother!

    Omar Thompson

  35. True Real Pearl

    Rest peacefully as your beautiful music lives on!

  36. LaEunice Chapman

    R.I.P. Another great singer transitioned.

  37. Holladay Cummings

    I truly hoped that everyone felt free in 1989; I thought we found equality.  Apparently, I was wrong.  I believed in complete equality.  This song breaks my heart b/c, I had no idea.

  38. Natalie Roach-khan

    They don’t make them like this nowadays, childhood memories ❤️

  39. Ty Taylor

    next to donny there is you bruh!!! That's great company!


    I love it

  41. Rosalind Jackson

    Everybody and their grandmomma redid this song... But this is one of the best versions I've heard! Donny himself would love it! Kudos😉


    Beautiful version of a classic

  43. Shawn Allen

    😒It's okay. Can't say I've ever heard a "bad" version of this, some are just better than others. Personally, for me, Aretha made the best version of it for Malcolm X. She took it to church...

    Tunmishe Oke

    hearing you loud and clear bro

  44. kriss mg

    That voice is incredible. So underrated. Wonderful. I listen to this everyday.

  45. Alp Engin

    Great voice... Before the original, I heard this one, so I feel it's even better than the original...

    Trey Taylor

    Alp Engin then you crazy 😂

    Camar Dunkley

    Yes it is and this not about not having respect for Donnie but we are just calling a spade a spade.

  46. Malete Lebo

    Not a bad rendition by James. I love it. Good one Brother...Take it from me someday we will be [email protected] 3:50...South Africa...

  47. Paul Gaunard

    Donny Hathaway était vraiment un visionnaire en musique vu le nombre d'artistes qui ont repris ses compositions classe !!!!!!

  48. Pepper Williams

    James sounds a lot like Donny on many of his notes. Great job!!! A beautiful song by the late great Donny Hathaway

  49. Franck Fiegel

    Great arrangements with Q and of course Toots 👍🏻

  50. yvonne Finch

    indeed James such a true song peace an love going out to you one of a kind will never be another James Ingram voice

  51. Dianne Cooper

    James did ok but no one brought it like Mr DONNIY

    Vic Nyoni

    Dianne Cooper James nailed it. You can't compare the two versions

    Trey Taylor

    Vic Nyoni well I am, Donny was better but both are gifted but there's no doubt Donny Hathaway made the song, also James Michael Henderson sound like brothers

  52. Prometheus C All

    James is awesome and this is a awesome SOng

  53. Russ Klatt

    you did Donny justice thank you brother

  54. Dj Duggie

    great remake of a classic

  55. Dee L Hudson Sr

    C'mon my Brotha, sang it!!!

  56. pnojazz

    An equally gifted voice as was Donny Hathaway


    equally?????? ummm i dont think so


    equally?????? ummm i dont think so


    equally?????? ummm i dont think so


    equally?????? ummm i dont think so

    Trey Taylor

    No, good but not Donny good

  57. commaction1

    Wonderful Video - great work!

  58. Rosalind Jackson

    Love his version, amazing!

  59. Rheal Nyce

    One of the great voices of our time. He sings with so much feeling. Something that's lacking in a lot of today's music.

  60. Thato Mathole

    I love this old man"s music,ooh my he is still hot till this day#good music
