Bethune-Cookman University Concert Chorale Paid Tribute To Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. At NFL Game

TAMPA – Dozens of Bethune-Cookman Wildcats recently traveled to Tampa for a special tribute in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

During halftime of the Jan. 15 NFL Wild Card matchup between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Philadelphia Eagles, the B-CU Concert Chorale performed some of Dr. King’s favorite songs, including “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” “I Can See Clearly Now,” and “Way Over in Beulah Land.”

The invitation came after the NFL announced it would celebrate Dr. King’s legacy throughout Wild Card weekend and launched the Realizing the Dream initiative to unite and uplift communities across the country by inspiring a movement of meaningful acts of service by the 100th anniversary of Dr. King’s birth.
