    This tribute to Martin Luther King was written by Livin' on a High Note producer M. Ward. The recording of it was an emotional experience for Mavis Staples. She recalled to Uncut: "I got so wrapped up in that I almost didn't finish it. The first time I choked up and started to cry, as I could see Dr. Martin Luther King as I was singing. It just hit me and I almost broke down. But I held it together and I finished, and then I broke down: you have to take your heart into the studio." https://www.songfacts.com/facts/mavis-staples/mlk-song

    Celebrating the life and legacy of Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., born on this day in 1929. Gospel singer and activist Mavis Staples dedicated this song to King on her 2016 album Livin' On A High Note. As part of The Staples Singers, Mavis enjoyed a close friendship with King and that group's music was a prominent soundtrack for the civil rights movement in the 1960s.
