At the close of his Thursday night show at Tanglewood, singer James Taylor paused to deliver a heartfelt remembrance of the late Senator Edward M. Kennedy. He told the packed house that Kennedy, a former trustee of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, was an ardent fan of the music at Tanglewood and was instrumental in helping the BSO develop Seiji Ozawa Hall.

His remarks were a brief segue into "Shed a Little Light," a song about Martin Luther King written in the early 1970s that was included in a recent CD commemorating Barack Obama's inauguration.
