Default Martin Luther King song from the 80s

There was a song by various artists (think "We Are the World") including New Edition and Whitney Houston that a Milwaukee radio station would play on Martin Luther King's birthday back in the 1980s. The lyrics I can remember "Dr. King tried to love somebody, do you want love somebody? For his sake we take a day, take to love someday."

Anyone know where I can obtain a copy of the song, the lyrics, name/artists?
