Martin Luther King, Jr., remembered through music!

A quick tribute to Martin Luther King, Jr., today. In 2002, Trax Records released a 12" that featured a remix of the Mr. Fingers classic "Can You Feel It?" that has much of MLK's "I Have A Dream Speech" overlaying this mellow, yet uplifting classic. So for today, just enjoy the track. I have also posted a video someone made using the song.

Remember what King stood for, today! Do a good deed in unsolicited fashion. Volunteer! Give to a charity you feel close to. If you give of yourself, you'd be quite surprised how good you feel afterwards. And work to help bring the ideas of equality to our country. As long as anyone suffers, we can always improve to give everyone the same rights and chances of everyone else.

And for this one, please do buy the music! No funny messages or anything. I think buying this song sends a very real message about the passion you share with us about what this great man stood for.
