MLK Day Tribute
On a beautiful day in 2012, I decided to take a trip down to the newly installed Martin Luther King Junior Memorial. My purpose was not only to witness the grand memorial but to also capture images for my web series, The Angle. I was taken aback by the sheer size and grand layout of the memorial. It took me a little over four hours to take it all in…which is still not enough time. Once I was finished, I rushed back to the studio to see what I had captured.
No camera can truly capture the awesomeness of the memorial. I find it to be the best memorial on the mall. Nevertheless, I knew that what I had captured needed something to accompany it. Perhaps some music.
Coincidentally, I had a recording of the amazing bassist, Kris Funn who is the husband of The Angle’s host, Paige Hernandez. We were at the studio working on a couple of other ideas and Kris busted out with this powerful rendition of “Left Every Voice”. I began to toy around with both timelines and within a few hours, decided it could work.
I hope you enjoy the what I put together.
