Hundreds of people braved single-digit temperatures Monday marching from the Freedom Center and Fountain Square to Music Hall for a 90-minute celebration of Martin Luther King Jr.

This year's event focused on attracting more young people with music and poetry.

Tonight on the Blues at 11pm, a special in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  The show begins with an uplifting version of "Battle Hymn of the Republic" by the Monty Alexander Trio and then Sweet Honey in The Rock.  You'll hear the words of Dr. Maya Angelou, Dr. Herbert Woodward Martin, and the Reverend King.

Other gospel selections are performed by the Blind Boys of Alabama, Shirley Caesar, the Birmingham Sunlights, and Mahalia Jackson.
