Stevie Wonder and Ledisi

The legendary Stevie Wonder, who, in 1980, successfully campaigned to make Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday a national holiday with the original song "Happy Birthday," joins Grammy-nominated recording artist Ledisi to sing "It's A Wonderful World" during the dedication ceremony for the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial on the National Mall, on October 16, 2011, in Washington, DC.  Ledisi was so moved, she had to take a moment during the song as she looked out at the crowd filled with President Barack Obama and the first family, other entertainers, civil rights leaders and gracious attendees.
