So, I could have very easily stuck Stevie Wonder’s Happy Birthday here or gone with John Lennon’s Imagine, but I wanted to do something a little different.

Back in 1986, at the height of We Are the World-style group singalongs, a slew of R&B and hip-hop artists got together to form the King Dream Chorus & Holiday Crew. Among the contributing artists: Kurtis Blow, Whodini, The Fat Boys, DMC & Jam Master Jay, New Edition, Menudo (featuring a teenage Ricky Martin), Teena Marie, Stephanie Mills, Kool & the Gang’s JT Taylor, El DeBarge, Full Force, Lisa Lisa and Whitney Houston.

For the first time in my 32 years, I can see tangible evidence of us moving forward to try to achieve Dr. King’s goal of equality, even if we’re only talking baby steps here. There’s still a long way to go, but we can all take our own individual baby steps and make sure we treat our brothers and sisters with respect-regardless of ethnicity, social status, sex, age or sexual orientation. It starts with just one, people.

Now I’ll get off my soapbox so you can enjoy the video.
