Cynthia Scott


I don’t know about you, but I am having a whirlwind summer and still going. Believe me when I tell you, it is not all fun. But, things, they are a-changing....


As some of you know, I have been trying, for quite some time, to get exposure to a certain song. I finally got a bite....


Cynthia Scott Sings Tribute Song "I Have A Dream" at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Dedication Week in Washington DC on May 25th


Original song that truly depicts the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, "People should not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."


NEW YORK, NY, August 18, 2011, Press Release -- Cynthia Scott will perform "I Have A Dream" written by her late brother-in-law, the Rev. Clinton Levert, Jr., on Thursday, August 25, 2011 at 6:15 p.m. at the Walter E. Convention Center in Washington, D.C. On this occasion she will also perform some additional songs from her latest all-original CD - "Dream For One Bright World" which reflect the teachings of Dr. King. Scott says, "The songs I will perform all address Dr. King's dream. It is an honor for me to participate in helping to keep his dream alive."

"The dedication of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial has been long-awaited, and people from around the world are coming to experience this . . . historic moment," said Harry E. Johnson, Sr., president of the Washington, D.C., Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial Project Foundation. "We are excited to welcome them all. Five days of festivities will be featured leading up to the dedication ceremony. The Memorial, the first on the National Mall to honor a man of peace, hope, and color, will be dedicated on August 28, 2011 in a West Potomac Park ceremony on the 48th anniversary of the March on Washington and Dr. King's historic "I Have a Dream" speech. Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Berry Gordy, Jr., George Lucas, Jamie Foxx and Clarence Avant will serve as celebrity hosts. The Rev. Al Sharpton, former secretary of state Colin L. Powell, TV broadcaster Tom Brokaw, and poet Maya Angelou are among those who will also participate in the dedication ceremony, according to the Foundation.


President Barack Obama will deliver an address at the Aug. 28, 2011 dedication ceremony.



Talk to you soon, and hopefully I’ll see some of you in DC. You never know.


Best regards,

Cynthia Scott

    This is beautiful. While I think that I have a Dream speech was only one of his great speeches, this musical interpretation is just awesome.
