Martin Luther King, Jr.

Chance the Rapper, Diddy, Pharrell, Ciara, & Zendaya Honor Martin Luther King, Jr.

In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, music’s biggest stars took to social media to pay tribute to the civil rights icon, sharing videos, photos, and quotes.

In an elaborate tribute, several celebrities joined forces to recreate Dr. King’s beloved and influential “I Have a Dream” speech on Twitter. It began with Chance the Rapper and carried on, involving Common, Alicia Keys, Jennifer Lopez, Kerry Washington, Lady Gaga, Diddy, Oprah, and Pharrell Williams, among others.

Others took to Instagram to offer their tributes. Rowland, for instance, reflected on Dr. King with a message of hope.

“Like SO MANY, I am praying so hard for this country,” she wrote. “As I pray I’m hearing the scripture, ‘faith without works is dead.’ Having faith is one thing, my ‘work’ in wanting to see change will be taking action in what I believe in! Not being a lazy citizen!

“What would this great man Dr.Martin Luther King, with such a great legacy, if he were still here say?” she asked. “What would he do? We have come a long way, but still have so far to go! LET US NOT BE LEAD BY FEAR! BUT, move with strategy…& courage!”
