Of course, is the name of the famous speech Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. made shortly before his assassination at the March on Washington August 18, 1963.
The message has lived in the hearts of millions of people who shared the actual March on Washington…or who viewed it on television.
I wanted to attempt to recreate the spirit of it in a song. My goal was not to paraphrase it as it was…but to imagine it as it might be today if Dr. King were able to speak to us.
The issues are so much broa der now…issues of survival on the planet where we will have to put aside our differences.
The song was selected to be included in a performance this year by the 38th Congress of Pueri Cantores in Washington D.C.
I am extremely honored that they chose this song. It was performed magnificently by 800 young people from around the world.
