Celebs Unite for Music Video In Support of President Obama
Ne-Yo, Natasha Bedingfield and other well known artists have come together to move this country forward. The singers have produced a song and video in support of re-electing President Obama.
Though the video is not sponsored by the official campaign, it still mirrors the incumbent’s 2012 campaign slogan — Forward. It’s a sequel to 2008’s celebrity-driven, “Yes We Can.” Like “Yes We Can,” “Forward” is executive produced by Fred Goldring,
Shot in black and white, the video incorporates the words of Obama throughout the song.
“I have never been more hopeful about America,” Obama says.
The video shows everyday people, teachers, teenagers, businessmen, kids and grandmothers, coming together and rallying for Obama. They hold hands, cheer and fill the streets in belief that “we’re half way there.”
In 2008, Will.i.am, John Legend Scarlet Johanson and other notable celebrities produced a song, “Yes We Can,” raising support for the Democratic candidate and the video garnered more than 24 million views on YouTube. “Forward” takes a slightly different tone from “Yes We Can,” recognizing that the hardships still facing the country.
“You can’t give up on hope…We’re on a long hard road but we’ll travel it together,” Ne-Yo sings.
