Join WERS in honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on Monday, January 17th with Playlists to the People. We're taking requests from you for songs that celebrate Dr. Kings' message of love, power, and strength. Whether it's Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On," or Brandi Carlile's "The Joke," we want to know: what music gives you strength? What songs do you think best capture the never ending work for civil rights and respect for Black lives?

Thanks to everyone who submitted a song! Entries are now closed. Join WERS on Monday, January 17th to hear playlists to the people.
