Die US-Vorwahlen habe ich bislang nicht weiter verfolgt, habe aber irgendwo aufgeschnappt, dass die Hillary Clinton den Kopf der Leute erreichen würde, Obama aber das Herz. Nachdem ich mir eben seine Rede nach Clintons Wahlsieg in New Hampshire angesehen habe, weiß ich auch, warum.

Will.i.am von den Black Eyed Peas war von der Rede ebenso beeindruckt und hat in einer spontanen Aktion einen Song daraus gebastelt und ins Netz gestellt, dazu gibt es noch ein feines Video mit unter anderem Scarlett Johansson, John Legend, Herbie Hancock, Kareem Abdul Jabbar und Nicole Scherzinger.

Aus dem Statement auf der offiziellen Website zum Song:

so I called my friends...
and they called their friends...
in a matter of 2 days...
We made the song and video...

Usually this process would take months...
a bunch of record company people figuring out strategies and release dates...
interviews...
all that stuff...
but this time i took it in my own hands...
so i called my friends sarah pantera, mike jurkovac, fred goldring, and jesse dylan to help make it happen...
and they called their friends..
and we did it together in 48 hours...
and instead of putting it in the hands of profit we put it in the hands of inspiration...

then we put it on the net for the world to feel...
