Video Du Jour: Stevie Wonder

Today is a very important day in our country – we celebrate the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who worked to achieve civil rights for Americans in the 1960s. This work also cost him his life, but it made him a symbol for a noble cause.

On his 1980 album Hotter Than July Stevie Wonder sang “Happy Birthday,” which is a tribute to Dr. King. I couldn’t find a video of him actually performing the song but here’s a tribute of sorts with the studio version. If I can find a live version I’ll add it.
