“We Have a Dream” ~ sermon-in-song
This morning David will honor the legacy of Dr Martin Luther King Jr., with song and story about dignity and respect for all. His music has found its way to Carnegie Hall, the United Nations, several Chicken Soup for the Soul books, the Kennedy Center, NASA’s Space Shuttle “Atlantis”, the 50th Anniversary Peter, Paul, & Mary retrospective “Discovered”, the Kingston Trio’s “Born at the Right Time” and countless venues in this and other countries (and now other WORLDS) for three decades. Poignant to improbable, holistic to hilarious (and a frequent presence at UU gatherings nationwide), David comes to us from his home on Cape Cod. Join us for a morning to remember … www.davidrothmusic.com
