One of the greatest of the songs written in tribute to Martin Luther King, Jr. is this inspired composition from folk singer Patty Griffin. "Up To The Mountain" has enjoyed a surge in popularity following it's performance by Kelly Clarkson and Jeff Beck on "Idol Gives Back" in 2007. It has since been covered by many artists including Susan Boyle and Crystal Bowersox. Though Griffin began performing the song around 2005, it was first recorded by the late Solomon Burke in 2006 and included on the album "Nashville". Griffin's version appeared on the 2007 album "Children Running Through". The Clarkson version doesn't seem to be commercially available anymore, though I know it once was.
I love Christmas, music, and cats. What more do you need to know?
