Stevie Wonder finally hopped on the social media train yesterday by signing up for Twitter – and his opening act was worth the wait. 11.4k people have followed Wonder’s account since it launched.

The artist paid tribute to Martin Luther King, Jr., in his first post with an uplifting video full of celebrities. Wonder published the tweet at the same time King was killed in Memphis 50 years ago.

11.4k people have followed Wonder’s account since it launched.

Wonder was joined by 82 celebrities and politicians, including Bette Midler, Cher, Barack and Michelle Obama, Mariah Carey, Elton John, and Meryl Streep, to honor King’s dream of equality.

They talked about their dreams, a reference to King’s “I have a dream” speech he delivered at the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.
