Siiiing Celebrate, Sing Sing Celebrate - FOR A KING


This is a tribute to a King. Tomorrow is the MLK Day. Every year I take this day off. Usually, I take this day to watch King documentaries on T.V. and listen to King tributes on the radio. It also gives me time to think and reflect how amazing this man was. I love talking to my elders who were a part of the King era and learn so much on what this man has done and what he did to promote equality in the world. My father fed my mind with so much knowledge in regards to the civil rights movement.

I remember when I was a little girl my parents took me and my sister to Atlanta. I remember like it was yesterday, we went to Ebenezer Baptist Church. We were outside taking pictures and guess who we saw. We saw Martin Luther King Sr. My father almost past out. He ask Mr. King Sr. for a picture which Mr. King was happy to do. My father was so nervous he dropped the camera like 5 times, lol. I shook Mr. King's hand. Back then I was young and was not elated as my father was, but now that I am an adult, I cherish and will always remember that encounter.

I was on You Tube and came arcoss the King Holiday video with the Fat Boys, Stephanie Mills, Menundo, Kurtis Blow, Run DMC, Lisa Lisa and Force MDs and my favorite group of all times, New Edition. I loved this video and is definitely a classic. I've been searching for this video and the album for years. Luckily I was on ebay and I saw three albums that are on sale that I plan to buy.

Enjoy the video and pay homeage to Dr. King and other heros and sheros that have paved the way making an impact in the lives of others.
