The track, called “One Small Voice,” is a play on the fable, “The Emperor’s New Clothes.” In a letter to the Huffington Post, King explained that she wanted the song to be free for everyone to listen to because “it will take the strength and persistence of many small voices to overcome the lies of the loudest voice with our message of truth, dignity, and decency.”
King, who is the subject of Broadway’s hit musical Beautiful, missed the March in D.C., but attended one in the tiny town of Stanley, Idaho, near her home.
“I marched in a snowstorm in Stanley, Idaho (pop. 63) with 29 other people comprising half the town,” she wrote. “I carried a handmade sign that said ‘One Small Voice’ because I’ve never stopped believing that one small voice plus millions of other small voices is exactly how we change the world.”
