Stevie Wonder

The headline reads right, singer and musician Stevie Wonder has joined Twitter as of April 4, 2018, and he didn’t disappoint.

CNN reports that Wonder paid respects to Martin Luther King Jr. on the 50th anniversary of his death. Posted a little after 8 p.m., the tweet when up around the same time Dr. King’s death was first announced to the world 50 years ago.

Attached to the tweet was a video filled with recognizable faces like Whoopi Goldberg, Mariah Carey, The Obama’s, Common, and many more. The video was a tribute to Dr. King’s “I Have A Dream” speech.

More celebrities and politicians like Kamala Harris, Serena Williams, Michael Strahan and Smokey Robinson all joined in with their support of Dr. King and the hashtag DreamStillLives in Wonder’s video.

The Grammy-winning artist has been a longtime advocate of Dr. King’s beliefs. In 1980, he made the song Happy Birthday to honor the work of the civil rights activist. From there he led a campaign to turn Dr. King’s birthday into a national holiday.
