Martin Luther King, Jr. Day - Do You Have a Dream ?

This Monday is Martin Luther King, Jr. day and while we wish you an amazing holiday weekend it's also a great time to reflect on your own dreams. Even as many of MLK's dreams, that not so long ago seemed impossible, have since come to pass, there are always new challenges. This past week our President, the dream personified , has in the wake of recent events in Arizona made his own soaring speech in an attempt to bridge the differences in our society proclaiming that 'we should do everything we can to make sure this country lives up to our children's expectations.'

What is your dream ? How does music act as a catalyst for change ? What message do you, with your music, want to get out to the world ? Drop us a line in the comments, put a link to your most inspirational song and spread the word.

Thanks so much for the reminder of the Dream
As a 63 yr.old white male formerly of Atlanta,Ga.
I was able to be a witness of the times.
As a young boy,I saw Rev.King on TV giving that
moving speach,(live) and as a 22 yr.old college student,I was at his funeral.
He was one of the finest men,God ever put on this planet.

This is a very inspiring video to whoever has dreams. particuraly as an artist, martin luther king really inspires me to overcome all the obstacles to become a better artist and a better person. I think one of my most inspiring word to spread the word is the one called Genesis, which mean the beginning, start over when everything went wrong. http://soundcloud.com/lizcano/genesis

It is never too late to live your dreams. It is up to us to make a difference in our world.

I listened to the testimony of an 80 year old man who was a retired astronaut say I plan to live to be 130 years old. His plan is to run past his expected mortality. He has been running the Iron-Man 21-20 triatholon for thirty years. The key here, work your plan! He started at 50! So run past the EXPECTED...I got it

My dream is to rid the world of the words "I can't".

I would love to see a world where everyone visualizes their dream, and puts an honest effort towards it. A world where dreams are realized and inventors are everywhere. That would be an accomplished world indeed.

That's more or less what my song "Cardboard Wings" is about.

We all have a dream..but we must know that God put it in us before we were born, then after we are born He expects us 2 fullfill those dreams in Jesus name....

My dream is for Peace, we all can enjoy the fruit of peace together if we just work together to build one another up.

I admire both men immensely and take cue from them on a daily basis.

Bringing comfort is my dream of music. To write about the human condition with humor and to offer that we can get through any adversity if we try hard enough. Individually and collectively.

Move on up!

My dream is people will learn to live in harmony with nature and each other. We can change the world, by changing our thoughts about the future. Music lead me to think like this...

I use my music to make a difference by combining the music with my environment projects. See the environmental music video on Jango at http://www.jango.com/music/Elliott+Small.

My dream is to inspire people. People always think that they are the only one going through something and sometimes a song helps you get through something or helps you realize that you are not the only one going through it. I hope that the songs I sing and write inspire some people out there in one way or another and make positive moves and maybe even motivate them to pay some knowledge or positive energy forward.

I live in Arizona, so it hit home. But it's good to see the nation and the president come together and hep everyone. The same way I see my music, I just want it to give the listener that feeling or help them through the common struggles of life. That's my dream... no fancy cars, no diamond rings, just enough money to provide myself with what i need!!! my prayers go out to all in Tucson!! god bless...

HADACCAH wrote and recorded a song, "They Went High," whis is in honor of Martin Luther King Jr, Coretta Scott King and others who have risen above evils in society so that all mankind can experience freedom. Hear it on Jango under HADACCAH. It's a beautiful, melodious piece of musical art.

My dream would be to know that I came through this life and made a difference, that my being here counted for something and that I left a legacy behind that was worth saving and that I won't someday be just a forgotten thing

Dr Martin Luther King made name with non-violent demonstrations and dreamt of peaceful times in the future for black people. But Obama made war, death and destruction of infrastructures within a matter of two weeks in a black country. What an irony!
