MUSICIANS TO HONOR MARTIN LUTHER KING WITH CONCERT

Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Queen Latifah, Carlos Santana, Garth Brooks and an all-star lineup of musicians will band together for the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial 'Dream Concert' on September 18.

The star-studded evening at Radio City Music Hall comes forty-four years after King delivered his famous "I Have a Dream" speech from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC. "This historic event embodies the ideals of hope and justice for which Dr. King stood," said co-chairs Tommy Hilfiger and Russell Simmons. "The concert will capture the essence of his lasting teaching by joining together musicians from across genre lines and pairing together unique musical combinations not usually found on the same stage."

Also expected to pay tribute to the civil rights leader are Alicia Keys, Halle Berry, Ben Affleck and Whoopi Goldberg.
