Will.i.am and friends inspire and move in this political viral video, Yes, we can! The lyrics, and the video are taken directly from Barack Obama’s speech following the 2008 New Hampshire primary. Obama’s eloquent words and speaking ability easily translates into this ballad. If you are not moved, you have no soul.
One trend that will certainly remain cool after it becomes mainstream; the inspiration and activism this election has inspired in artists, musicians, writers, young people and first time or former undecided voters, among others. Mostly, it reminds us that caring about politics never goes out of style!
