Pete Seeger passed away this week at the age of 94. THIRTEEN and American Masters present a special in memoriam broadcast of the 2008 documentary Pete Seeger: The Power of Song, Friday, January 31, at 10:30 p.m and Saturday, February 1st at 2 p.m.

This film poetically documents how the late Pete Seeger helped introduce America to its own musical heritage, devoting his life to using the power of song as a force for social change.

Standing strong for deeply-held beliefs, Seeger went from the top of the pop charts to the top of the blacklist and was banned from American commercial television for more than 17 years. This determined singer/songwriter made his voice heard and encouraged the people of the world to sing out with him.

American Masters - Pete Seeger: The Power of Song airs tonight at 10:30 PM and Saturday, February 1 at 2PM on THIRTEEN (WNET).
