LOTSA A CAPPELLA
DR. KING TRIBUTE
Annual Tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
and others who worked for freedom and justice
Well, I don't know what will happen now. We've got some difficult days ahead. But it doesn't matter with me now. Because I've been to the mountaintop. And I don't mind. Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I'm not concerned about that now. I just want to do God's will. And He's allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I've looked over. And I've seen the promised land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people will get to the promised land. And I'm happy, tonight. I'm not worried about anything. I'm not fearing any man. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord.
Here's the most recent playlist for the Dr. Martin Luther King special on Lotsa A Cappella on KDHX:

"We must develop and maintain a sense of dignity and self respect. We must not allow anybody or anything to make us feel that we do not
count. We must believe in our souls that we are somebody, that we are significant, that we are worthful; we must walk the streets everyday
with this sense of dignity and this sense of self respect..."
