Martin Luther King Jr.-A Tribute in Music Class

Next week we celebrate MLK Day.  In music class this week our Song of the Week is "Free at Last".  This song based on Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I have a Dream Speech" is by Teresa Jennings.  You can hear it and download it here.

In addition to singing this song, some classes watched a very clever version of his speech.  A student from Brooklyn, NY used video clips of the speech and ran them through auto-tune.   Auto-tune is technology that alters voices to be more in-tune.  It was originally designed for singers, but this student used it to create a song from a speech.  Watch his final project below.

  1. My 4th and 5th graders LOVED this! They went home and pulled it out on their home computers and showed their parents. Thanks for sharing!
