Ben-Tankard EXCLUSIVE!

In preparation for MLK Day and Black History Month I want to do my part in spreading hope and love! This is my way of encouraging everyone to simply ” Reach Out and Touch Somebody’s Hand”. In doing so, I believe we can accomplish the lyrics of this song and , “Make This world a Better Place…”.

I have gathered some images that will make us pray, laugh, and cry as we reflect historic moments in our distant and most recent past. Music is a universal language so prayerfully my instrumental backdrop of this classic song along with some help from my melodic brother, Kirk Whalum on sax, will strike a chord in the hearts of Americans and we can love and respect each other despite our differences.
