Justin Bieber Gets Support From Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Family Amid Backlash

Justin Bieber’s latest album, Justice, has received the support of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s King Center, which has allowed him to play a prelude of one of Dr. King’s popular speeches at the start of the album.

Lil Wayne Chided By Fans After Honoring Martin Luther King Jr. on Twitter

Martin Luther King Jr. day feels different this year.
