ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The “Sing for Dr. King! – Vitamin L Songs for a Beloved Community” CD is a compilation of new selections by Jan Nigro, along with previously released Vitamin L songs about empathy, human rights, appreciating diversity, respectful communication, each person’s ability to make a positive contribution in this world, and more.

This recording is an excellent resource that supports character education efforts at home and in school. In addition, listeners will learn some civil rights history.

All of the songs on this CD are compatible with the teachings and ideals of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Our intention is that these songs will inspire new generations of young people with Dr. King’s courage and vitally important messages – through the magic of song.

Historical facts from Dr. King’s courageous, inspiring life are included in “Martin’s Heart!” "Martin is Calling” is about Dr. King and contains a call to action. The astounding bravery of the Freedom Riders’ non-violent actions taken in 1961 are remembered and honored in the song “Freedom Riders Got to Ride.” “Step Up! Speak Out!” encourages all of us to take action when we witness injustice.

Veteran civil rights leader Dorothy Cotton sings with Vitamin L in a rousing rendition of “This Little Light of Mine.”

"Sing for Dr. King!” celebrates Dr. King’s vision for a world in which each individual is celebrated for his or her own unique contribution to the whole human family. “Sing for Dr. King!” was produced to support the creation of a Beloved Community in every community, town, and city.

THE BELOVED COMMUNITY

“Dr. King’s Beloved Community is a global vision, in which all people can share in the wealth of the earth. In the Beloved Community, poverty, hunger and homelessness will not be tolerated because international standards of human decency will not allow it. Racism and all forms of discrimination, bigotry and prejudice will be replaced by an all-inclusive spirit of sisterhood and brotherhood. In the Beloved Community, international disputes will be resolved by peaceful conflict-resolution and reconciliation of adversaries, instead of military power. Love and trust will triumph over fear and hatred. Peace with justice will prevail over war and military conflict.”
