“We Shall Overcome”

On January 22nd, our Moon Valley Ensemble group performed at the annual Martin Luther King Jr. commemoration ceremony at ASU West.  The event not only incorporated ASU students and staff, but members of the community and about 1,000 middle-school students.  In fact, the junior high students walked through the campus re-enacting a civil rights march and then gathered with the crowd to hear a rendition of MLK’s, “I Have a Dream” speech recited by Professor Charles St. Clair.

Our Moon Valley Vocal Ensemble group punctuated the moment by singing an inspirational gospel song from the 60’s called “Lift Every Voice and Sing”.  Later in the celebration the group performed again singing the iconic tune “We Shall Overcome”.  Moon Valley is thrilled that our choir group was invited to perform at this distinguished event to commemorate one of America’s greatest heroes.
