Broadway’s ‘Fela!’ Joins Bono, John Legend in Music Video

While U2’s charismatic leader Bono hasn’t made his official splash on Broadway — both he and guitarist the Edge have written the music for the upcoming “Spider Man: Turn off the Dark” — the Irish singer joins dancers from Broadway’s “Fela!” in the music video for Angelique Kidjo‘s spin on the classic “Move On Up.”

Kidjo’s version of the Curtis Mayfield song appears on her album “Oyo” and features vocals from Bono and John Legend. As for the music video, appearing on the Huffington Post, the Bill T. Jones trained dancers from Broadway’s “Fela!” are prominently featured throughout, giving wider exposure to an already celebrity-backed musical production.

“I am convinced that the success of the ‘Fela!’ musical on Broadway is the indisputable sign that people are now interested in the true richness, depth and beauty of African culture,” Kidjo said in a statement, according to the Huffington Post.

Meanwhile, “Fela!’s” producers are ecstatic to have their dancers show up in the video, adding that the company “was honored to participate in this beautiful music video, and we are delighted by how well the video captures both the spirit and soul of Angelique, of the ‘Fela!’ performers, and of Bill’s choreography.”
