Choral arrangement of MLK

The choir I am in at my college is doing an arrangement of "MLK" for a Martin Luther King Day program next week, and I have to day it sounds really nice. I also must confess that when I found out we were singing "MLK," I informed my choir director that we should all watch Rattle and Hum (which he vetoed, although I did loan my video to the guy singing the solo) and that we also try to track down an arrangement of "Pride (In the Name of Love)" as a companion piece, which he also vetoed. Sigh.

Anyway, is anyone familiar with this arrangement? Ever performed it or heard it performed?

My sister was part of a chorus that sang this arrangement and it was fantastic! She sang the solo so I'm a little biased though.

The only black guy in our choir did the solo...when he was told to come down in front so that he would "stand out," he replied to our director: "I'm the only black guy, I already stand out."
