(CNN)Stevie Wonder has joined Twitter and his first tweet did not disappoint.
The Grammy-winning superstar paid tribute to the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. on Wednesday in his inaugural tweet posted shortly after 8 p.m. ET. The timing of the tweet appears to coincide with the moment the civil rights leader was pronounced dead 50 years ago.
The tweet came with a star-studded video in which the Obamas and celebrities such as Common, Bette Midler and Billy Crystal talked about their own dreams -- a nod to King's famous "I Have A Dream" speech. King delivered the speech five years before he was assassinated in Memphis.
"On April 4th, 1968 at 7:05 p.m. central time, Dr. King's life was cut tragically short. 50 years later a need for his dream to be fulfilled is far greater than ever," Wonder tweeted on Wednesday. "Share your dream & post your own #DreamStillLives video. Spread love...spread hope."
Wonder called in a host of famous friends from politics, sports, business, music and entertainment to help him with the video tribute.
Sen. Kamala Harris, Dave Chappelle, Warren Buffett, Bon Jovi, Katy Perry, Serena Williams and Smokey Robinson also made appearances in the five-minute video.
