Actor Donald Glover's musical alter-ego, Childish Gambino, is earnest, even pleading, in his passion. You'll feel that raw emotion when you listen to the standout gospel song, "Me and Your Mama," on his new album, Awaken, My Love!
That same moving single now has a virtual reality video to accompany it. To watch it, you have to download his Pharos app (free and kind of strange). While you're encouraged to use a VR headset, it's not necessary. Just tilt your phone to see Childish Gambino rock glow-in-the-dark duds and belt out "Me and Your Mama" with a live band to back him up. The VR experience is promo for the album release.

Childish Gambino's third studio album, Awaken, My Love! was released Friday, Dec. 2.
