"Freedom JuneTeenTh" Written on June 19th and Launched on July 4th
This is a demo. I am in the process of looking for the right group or artist to perform this, in-studio and live. We are also open for multiple artists and individuals. That's one of the reasons we put not only the lyrics but also the guitar chords so that folks can sing AND play along.

The website, AbrahamMartinAndJohn.com is of course taken from the 1968 hit song. It was written by Dick Holler and first recorded by Dion. It is a tribute to the memory of four assassinated Americans, all icons of social change: Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King Jr., John F. Kennedy, and Robert F. Kennedy. It was written in response to the assassination of Dr. King and that of Robert Kennedy in April and June 1968, respectively.
All the lyrics of "Freedom JuneTeenTh" are inspired by the life and words of Dr. Martin Luther King and the author attempts to give "The Good Doctor's" much-needed perspective on these troubled times.
