From American Girl's Melody page:

Melody Ellison loves to sing. Whether she's in the choir at church or backing up her brother's Motown music, she's eager to blend her voice with others. When Melody's asked to sing her first solo at church, she's determined to choose the right song and make it perfect. She's inspired by the words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. She's also influenced by her older sister, who is taking action to make things fair for black people. After experiencing discrimination for herself, Melody decides to add her voice to those who are speaking up about equality. She does so by choosing a powerful song for her solo. Just as Melody's ready to sing, an unimaginable tragedy leaves her silent. Can she lift her voice when it matters most?
