Man, that was good.Thank you. All right, so basically, we're doing a lotof different stuff, from Alicia Keys, Stevie Wonder, Amy Winehouseâ€¦ And what's interestingabout this is not so much that we're just doing a bunch of cover songs, but it's howTori finds herself in the song, and actually
represents that art with her own touch, herown flair, but to be able to sing in a lot of different styles, because what this doesis to give you a lot of tools for your toolbox for singing.

Let Freedom Ring
â€¦all of God's children, black men and whitemen, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join handsâ€¦ To let freedom ring true in the ears of everyman Woman and child, it's time to take a standBecause the plan don't include you and I There's truth in lies like what Bush describesAs the terrorists being jealous of our liberty Ask the Middle East is the enemy themor we You fortell in your tales of democracyMr. President it's evident to me it's hypocrisy The green eyes that I see eyes the green andblack gold
The facts told, you're that bold you're thatcold Let Freedom Ring with a conscience in honor of victimsThat died innocent in a quest for another's riches911 was whored as leverage to force the message Of your agenda of by fear to legitimize yourmethods Your pride is senseless and the lies are endlessWe're tied bound and gagged and our lives defenselessEven minds are rendered useless of all reason Recount your own actions and speak to me oftreason The Patriot Act, call it the Bin Laden initiativeCitizens get treated like the Taliban did them
Or Redcoats did pilgrims in the name of England Independent thoughts lead unsatisfied menSkull and Bones marks the mantle of danger Redirecting our anger to shadows and distantstrangers Let Freedom RingFrom the slums to the ears of God Let Freedom RingFrom the babes in their mothers arms Let Freedom Ring From Iraq Israel Let Freedom RingFrom America before we sell Let Freedom RingFrom Tibet to Africa
Let Freedom RingFrom China to North Korea Let Freedom RingFrom the Bible to the Holy Koran Let Freedom RingFrom life before we take up arms Let Freedom Ring, The revolution will be televisedBecause when I get a chance to tell them lies I'm going on the television to tell a visionChannel 0's the only place the people will listenIslam you call a Jihad to settle a score I understand your pain by holy men don't war And Allah or God don't want no blood on their nameEspecially innocents whose lives you take in vain
Cradle of civilizationé Dome of the rock,to say the least If that's the case, no wonder there is nopeace From the Potala in Lhasa to Beijing's RedSquare Picture monks staring down gun barrels fullof fear Let us be clear, all men are created equal But nurture has a way of turning the people evil China took lessons from the British and communists Now Taiwan is a target for imperial dominance
Give us us free from Pyonyang to the Sudan Freedom to have the peace in our lives thatwe should have Freedom from your greed at our expense Freedom from you getting ahead by putting our lives at risk Freedom for me to practice Falun Gong in peace And not have children tortured to make mecease Freedom from prejudices forced against my peopleFreedom to walk among my brethren and fear no evil
President Obama at the Let Freedom Ring Concert
President Obama:Thank you so much to DeGioia thank you. (applause) Thank you very much. Thank you. Thank youto DeGioia. Thank you so much to the entire Georgetown family; to my Cabinet, who is workingtirelessly each and every day on behalf of the American people; to members of Congresswho are in attendance; to dignitaries and ambassadors; to tonight's honorees; to Coach.It is wonderful to be here this evening. It is a great privilege. Thank you.
(applause) It is a great privilege to be with all ofyou tonight in this place that we set aside to celebrate America's arts, but on this daywe set aside to commemorate an American giant. And it's fitting that we are commemoratingthe life of the Reverend Martin Luther King with an evening of song. (applause) Because songs played, as all of you know,an important part in the civil rights movement that he led. It's been said that during thecivil rights movement, King and his associates
would go around to different communities inthe hopes of organizing and mobilizing them, and they'd know which were serious about theboycott which had the discipline to actually help pull it off if folks in those communitieswere singing freedom songs. And when he saw young people singing in the face of hostility,he said that's when he first saw quot;the real meaning of the movement.quot; He said it was aboutthe quot;faith in the future.quot; He said that it was quot;based on hope.quot; So I'm pleased to behere tonight to listen to some beautiful music that I think would have made King sharea little extra faith in our future. Of course, as we gather here to celebrate King'slife with an evening of the arts, we're also
mindful that this is a difficult time forour people and for our world. Across this country, Americans are struggling, and fewmore than African Americans those very same inheritors of progress sown by Kingand the civil rights movement. Too many are struggling right now. Around the world, oursons and daughters are fighting two wars. Closer to home, our Haitian neighbors arein desperate need. Across an ocean, in Africa, many people are still living amid povertyand violence and disease of the kind that Dikembe Mutombo, who's being honored heretonight, is attacking with the same ferocity with which he used to block shots in the NBA.
(laughter and applause) And I want to commend Dikembe on his outstandingleadership in giving back to his nation and his people and in honoring the life and legacyof King by doing such extraordinary acts of service. The bottom line is, this is adifficult time. But we are here tonight to remember and celebrate a man who inspireda people and a nation to overcome another difficult time. That's why they sang quot;We ShallOvercome,quot; because it was hard. There was something to overcome. We're all very familiar,of course, with the speech King delivered from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial inthe late summer of 1963. We're all familiar
with the booming voice echoing across a seaof people from all corners of the country. We're familiar with the dream he describedto a nation. But what I don't think we stop to reflect on enough is the strength it tookto articulate that dream. It would have been easy for King to rise to that podium andpreach a message of division or hate or blame somebody else. This is a man whose own lifeand whose own family had been the target of attacks; a man who had been beaten, a manwho had been stabbed, a man who had been jailed; a man who had been denied his most basic rightsdespite all the erudition, despite his fancy degrees, because of the color of his skin.Throughout the land, he saw segregation still
