Video/Audio/Image Library

The House of Blues Foundation and IUMA are proud to present this multi-media library of videos, sound clips, and still images from the Martin Luther King Jr. Birthday Celebration and Tribute show. The Celebration took place Monday, January 16th from 10AM PST - 1PM PST and featured an all-star line-up of speakers and performers ranging from personal tributes to Martin Luther King, Jr. by Chuck D. (Public Enemy), Isaac Hayes and Dr. Eugene Grigsby III to a surprise appearance by Stevie Wonder, feturing a live performance of "Happy Birthday."

The MLK birthday tribute show features the legendary gospel group The Five Blind Boys of Alabama as well as a performance by the blues harp master Charlie Musselwhite. Wrapping up the show will be the Count Basie Orchestra (not broadcast).
