Odetta, born Odetta Holmes, was an influential artist/activist of the civil rights generation. During her 60-year career, she influenced numerous performers, including Harry Belafonte, Bob Dylan, Joan Baez and Janis Joplin. Her signature song was "This Little Light of Mine." Odetta took part in the historic freedom marches of the 1960s in Selma, Alabama, and in Washington, D.C. Martin Luther King, Jr. named her "Queen of American Folk Music." President W. J. Clinton honored her with the National Medal of Arts, saying, "Odetta reminds us all that songs have the power to change the heart and change the world."
