Way back in 1986 the King Dream Chorus and Holiday Crew which consisted of R&B and Hip Hop stars ranging from Whitney Houston to Run DMC released a song in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. I’ll never forget this because when it was first celebrated as a national holiday January 20, 1986 I was still a junior in high school and had just written a paper on Dr. King.

I also had a huge crush on Stacy Lattisaw so this was even more reason to stay up late and watch Friday Night videos.

Happy Martin Luther King Day and watch the video to see if you can name all the artist.
