To commemorate Martin Luther King Day, director Ryan Coogler organized a star studded event to celebrate the life and legacy of the civil rights icon.

At the event, Anika Noni Rose performed J. Cole's "Be Free." The song finds Cole grappling with the realities of white supremacy.

Coogler, who served as host for the event, explained that he asked Cole to perform the song, but he declined because the subject matter is too difficult.

Anika Noni Rose stepped in and put her own remarkable twist on the song.
