LINCOLN BICENTENNIAL COMMISSION ENDORSES CHILDREN'S SONG
The Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission in Washington, D.C. has endorsed singer-songwriter Greg Cherone's patriotic children's song "A Man Named Abraham Lincoln."
"Introducing Lincoln to any child is the reward in itself." Cherone says. His song is intended to inspire children and adults to learn more about the sixteenth president.
The Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission was established by Congress to plan a "fitting and proper" national celebration of the 16th president's 200th birthday in 2009. Its members, appointed by the president and congressional leaders, include political leaders, jurists, historians, and collectors. The ALBC aims to renew Americans' appreciation of Lincoln's ideals of freedom, democracy, and equal opportunity, and to encourage all people to "live the legacy."
