VIDEO: King Dream Chorus & Holiday Crew “King Holiday”

The King Dream Chorus and Holiday Crew dropped “King Holiday” in January 1986 in honor of Martin Luther King Jr’s birthday finally being recognized as a national holiday. The Fat Boys, Whodini, Grandmaster Melle Mel, Kurtis Blow and Run-DMC are the “Holiday Crew” while numerous singers make up the “King Dream Chorus,” including New Edition, Menudo, El DeBarge, Whitney Houston and the late great Teena Marie. MLK’s son Dexter Scott King, who has legal disputes with his siblings pertaining to their late father’s estate, executive produced the project.

Plenty of 80s nostalgia here, and jheri curl juice. [Big up to Dhanraj for the reminder.]
