In Memory of MLK

I am a huge fan of Nina Simone. This morning in my FriendFeed's "Best of Day" stream a link came across that I want to share with all of you. Fred Wilson posted this mp3 of Nina singing "Why?" (The King of Love is Dead). According to his link, this was played live 3 weeks after Martin Luther King's death. You really should take a listen. May we all remember this amazing man!

I was thinking on my way into work today (unfortunately I no longer get the day off since I changed jobs) that he would have been 80. It really is a shame he didn't live to see tomorrow, when the whole world celebrates Obama's inauguration. But at least he will be there in our hearts and minds on that historic day.

I agree, tomorrow is a day he was waiting for. We are going to witness history - that's for sure!
