Stevie Wonder Just Tweeted For The Very First Time—And For A Good Cause

Last night, world-renowned musician, singer, songwriter, and producer Stevie Wonder joined the Twitter-sphere for the best possible reason.

Half a century has passed since Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated. Sharing a dream of an equal, integrated future for people of all races, religions, and genders, the activist was a paramount voice and leader in the civil rights movement. He aided in paving the path toward a future like the one he dreamed of and has left a mark on the world, even long after his death.

Celebrities took to social media to share his message and his dream, one that has and will continue to live on in his legacy. 

One of these famous faces was none other than Stevie Wonder – who decided to make a special video dedicated to Dr. King.

Michelle and Barack Obama, Ke$ha, Mariah Carey, Whoopi Goldberg, and Jimmy Kimmel are a mere few of the prominent political and entertainment figures featured in the video. Each figure shared their own dream, from laughable wishes to be reincarnated as a cat in another life to serious pleas to help save the planet and realize once and for all that everyone is equal. 

Everyone had something to share, and the video was heartwarming, hopeful, and uplifting. 

Wonder used the video to ignite the trending hashtag #DreamStillLives to honor and celebrate Dr. King:

Wonder ended the video with a simple request for his followers to share their own dream, and they didn’t disappoint. 

People responded with their own dreams, and it got pretty emotional:

Some poured their hearts out, sharing their stories and struggles in an attempt to move closer toward their own dreams:

Others had dreams for their home countries, and the future in store for them:

Welcome to Twitter, Stevie. Looking forward to more inspiring messages in the future.
