CLEVELAND, Ohio -- It's become a Fox 8 News in the Morning tradition to celebrate the life and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. with music. The Weeden Family Singers is a local gospel choir that shares a special history with the civil rights leader. An ancestor of the family, Dr. John Weeden, often brought Dr. King to Cleveland to speak at his church and help with voter registration drives. The Weeden Family Singers perform at community events in Northeast Ohio and have recorded a CD.
