Due to the pandemic, Timberlake and Clemons joined in on the event from Memphis, Tennessee.

In a post on Instagram, Timberlake commented on the performance and participating in such a historic moment.

Timberlake also thanked the students and alumni at Stax Music Academy for accompanying the performance in Memphis.

“This is a very special place to me, because it exists to nurture the next generation of great soul communicators,” he wrote. “And if we’ve learned anything this year, it’s that this new generation of voices is powerful and crucial to creating much needed change. I hope you all enjoy the performance, and I hope, more than anything, that this song brings a little bit of joy as we move forward.”

Fans have been praising the uplifting duet on social media.
