From its release, the Happy Birthday song was campaigning for the establishment of a national holiday in memory of the reverend Martin Luther King Jr.
In 1986, Stevie Wonder's determination paid off when Ronald Reagan introduced into U.S. law the third monday of january as a holiday in his memory.

Dès son lancement, la chanson Happy Birthday bat campagne pour l'instauration d'un congé national en hommage au révérend Martin Luther King Jr.
La détermination de Stevie Wonder paya lorsque, en 1986, Ronald Reagan légitima le 3e lundi de janvier comme congé officiel en sa mémoire.
