SELMA, Alabama - Every year, people all across the country join together to honor Civil Rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

This year, the cast and crew of the groundbreaking movie "Selma" also paid homage to Dr. King's monumental legacy.

Oprah Winfrey, Common, John Legend, director Ava Duvernay, along with thousands of others,  marched from city hall to the Edmund Pettus Bridge.

Rapper/actor Common says, "The atmosphere was very, very heavenly. It was very divine. It just felt like a moment where I feel so blessed and inspired."

Jamon Pulliam, a student who marched, added, "It feels like I'm a part of history. They were so many things that happen on this very bridge. Blood is on these very streets right now."

Actor David Oyelowo says, "You could feel the spirit of hope. You could feel the spirit of brokenness as well. And you know I just felt taken up with the feeling of just praying that we'll see a brighter day."

Common and John Legend, also, performed the movie's Oscar-nominated song "Glory."
