[youtube id=”V9xIsaO-nRQ”] Kurtis Blow talks to VladTV about Dexter King asking him to create a song for his father Martin Luther King Jr. and how Prince paid $90,000 to create the video. El DeBarge, Whitney Houston, Stacy Lattisaw, New Edition and Stephanie Mills were some of the artists to appear on “King Holiday.” The song was a celebration of the actual King holiday that started January 20, 1986. Prince did not have any creative input on the song but had respect for King’s work.
