Martin Luther King Jr. was tragically assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee, 50 years ago on April 4. Now, more than 70 celebrities came together to honor Dr. King on the anniversary of his death by sharing a modern-day version of the civil rights leader’s famous “I Have a Dream” speech.
The five-minute clip, titled “The Dream Still Lives,” was posted by Stevie Wonder at 7:05 p.m. CT, which is the exact time King was fatally shot on April 4, 1968. Wonder shared the video on his YouTube and Facebook page, and even joined Twitter just for the occasion.
In the video, Wonder and a wide variety of celebrities — from the Obamas to Paul McCartney and Harry Styles — shared a dream they see for the future. The caption encourages viewers to “create and post your own ‘Dream Still Lives’ video with #DreamStillLives. Spread love…spread hope.”
Some dreams were empowering, such as The Chainsmokers, who hoped to “live in a world where people can be themselves.” Others were a bit more lighthearted, like Kesha’s desire “to come back as a house cat in my next life.”
