Will.i.am of The Black Eyed Peas, inspired by Barack Obama’s ‘Yes We Can’ speech (given after the NH primary) set it to music and made a wonderful video, starring some of his friends, like John Legend, Scarlett Johansson, Common, Herbie Hancock, etc.
It’s a very moving video full of inspiration and hope. (Tatyana Ali and Nicole Scherzinger have amazing acapella in it.) Kareem Abdul Jabbar is even in it. See it here.
Will.i.am said that listening to Barack’s NH speech “…made me reflect on the freedoms I have, going to school where I went to school, and the people that came before Obama like Martin Luther King, presidents like Abraham Lincoln that paved the way for me to be sitting here…and making a song from Obama’s speech.”
