A Short Music Playlist for Spiritual Exhales

I just added this playlist to the "Remembering a A Life" Martin Luther King poem page because the code for James Taylor's Shed A Little Light by itself wasn't working. Perhaps someone will listen and relax his or her mind for a while. I hope the record companies lets them stay up. They're old classics. Well, maybe not the Eric Benet song, but it's still old. And of course, I strongly urge you that if you like the music, you buy it, put money in the artists' pockets, and add it to your MP3 player.

I've also added a YouTube embed below this playlist of Donny Hathaway's "Some Day We'll All Be Free" so you can hear the contrast between Hathaway's version and Raymond Myles's version. Both singers are now deceased, Hathaway suffered from depression and committed suicide, and Myles was murdered on the streets of New Orleans. The people who move us with comforting words don't always get to live in comfort.
