Sing A Song For MLK Day

MLK mini poster coloring pageAlong with raising a creative and intelligent child, you’ve probably also been thinking about how to encourage your child to be kind, empathetic and caring. With MLK day approaching quickly, here’s a song that you can use to gently teach about the life and legacy of a man that overcame evil with good and dedicated his life to service to others and a quest for equality.

The “I Have a Dream” song came out in 2006 and has been used extensively in classrooms, homeschool settings and special presentations all across the USA. The lyrics are simple and very singable, making this a great song for even the youngest listener.


(Words and music by Daria A. Marmaluk-Hajioannou)

There’s a man I think you’ve heard of
His name is Martin Luther King
He wanted a world of peace and love
He said “I have a dream”

I have a dream
I have a dream
I’ve been to the mountaintop and I’ve seen…
I have a dream

He said “ I know that this is possible
I know that this can be
If each one can learn to live with love
Then we can all be free”

If you share this vision
You know it’s not a difficult thing
We can build a world of peace and love
And we can all be queens and “kings”.
