  1. That is a nice mix of real funk here & a real cool way to use the MLK ‘I have a dream speech,

    Its fitting to note that over 45 years ago on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial MLK delivering his ‘I Have a Dream’ speech, where he evoked the ideals of the man who set the black man (and women) free, Abraham Lincoln himself & this is also the same place where the first black president of the country Barack Obama will celebrate his inaguration.

    Dont you love it when the world smiles at you.

    It seems the whole world is ready for change now after the mess the last president left around the world. but lets not even mention his name, its a time for joy now, so lets soak it up and dance to this tribute.

    thank you for finding and sharing this positive music, its good to know good music is coming out of Down Under too.

    Big Love
