JUSTIN Gets A Well-Deserved Standing Ovation at Martin Luther King Memorial!!


What an incredible day today in Albany, NY, as Justin took his place among the stars!! And there were stars aplenty present at the annual Dr. Martin Luther King Memorial Observance in Albany today! George Huff (American Idol Finalist and nicest guy ever!!) gave a brilliant gospel performance, and The Apollo Kids "Star Of Tomorrow" winner, Nikita, is bound to earn that title!! Girl can sAAAAAAANG!!! Also, there was a 6 year old trumpet player who has performed at the White House and with some very famous jazz musicians!! Barbara Howard, Jim Lucas, & a member of the Alvin Ailey Dance Troupe also helped pay homage to Dr. King, one of the most important and courageous American heroes. Justin sang the national anthem to begin the tribute, and later in the program blew away the audience with his rendition of Sam Cooke's "Change Is Gonna Come". Below are some video and photo highlights of this unforgettable day!!

Below is a video of his UNBELIEVABLE performance of "Change Is Gonna Come". After the song is done, listen to American Idol finalist George Huff's high praise for P.S.22's young prodigy!

Mr. B! Here I am across the world from you guys (in Kazakhstan), admiring the young talent you're helping nourish. You're doing a great job, giving these kids this, I don't know, awesome world of music and artistic freedom. It'll help them in the future, even if they never do become professional singers. But boy oh boy, can they sing! Thank you, from the bottom of my heart! Cannot wait to see y'all perform at the Oscars!
