Service was a dominant theme during a celebration Friday of the life and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.

In advance of Monday's holiday, the Jefferson City Regional Martin Luther King Committee brought together speakers, singers and dancers to highlight, interpret and champion King's commitment to serve his fellow man.

"Martin Luther King wanted us to know each other personally," said Bill Miller, the featured speaker. "He brought hope and healing to America."
