  1. Hi,
    What you talking about!!!????. I lived in NY for over 20yrs and finances only keep me from moving back. There is no place like NY and I have lived in a few places and traveled aboard. Thank you for this song. I just found out about the concert. I should’ave been there, still, I can feel it in my spirit. All we have to do is get out and vote and with all the continued prayers, we can celebrate our next commander-in-chief, PRESIDENT OBAMA. It will not be an easy job for he has inherited a mess sure enough..but to God be the glory it can be made right. GOD BLESS AMERICA….AND THANK GOD AGAIN FOR OUR NEXT PRESIDENT OBAMA. WHAT AN AWESOME SONG…YOU’LL KNOW HOW TO REPRESENT. Thanks for listening

  2. I hope the campaign sees this and buys it and makes it a tv spot. it’s the positive ads we need and want.

  3. Great music for a great cause. See, this is the kind of creativity Obama inspires. It’s like he’s helped to lift a veil from artists and others that the fear-based, greed ladened present regime has employed, world-wide. Ba-rack On!!!

  4. This is great! See, this is how Obama inspires artists and others across this country (and worldwide) It’s like he’s helped lift a veil of doom, fear and worry and given us back to ourselves. Ba-rack-On, Baby. Make sure you’re registered, know your polling place and VOTE!

  5. Too cute. I love how everyone across America is getting involved with Ba-Rack fever. Keep it going.

    Ciao

  6. For years Madison Ave sold stuff with a catchy tune and good lyrics..This one is GREAT and OBAMA should use some of his cash to repeat it over and over on T.V. and Yes radio….too!

  7. BEAUTIFUL…LOVE IT LOVE IT…I’M SEVENTY-FOUR YEARS OLD AND I LOVED IT. GOD BLESS THE YOUTH OF AMERICA. THEY WILL SEE THIS THROUGH. GO YOUTH…GO YOUTH…I WISH I WERE THERE (IN YEARS) WITH YOU. I AM THERE IN SPIRIT. KEEP GOING TO THE YOUTH OF AMERICA. THEY WILL BE THE ONES TO KEEP AMERICA WHAT IT WAS DESIGN TO BE IN IT’S BEGINNING. GOD BLESS THE YOUTH OF AMERICA.

  8. This is what needs to be heard. The lyrics are percise and on point. Thumbs up to the performers. You have opened many eyes and allowed one to expand their thinking concerning this matter. I applaud you for your message.You have my vote and so does Barack!!!

  9. Thank you for delivering such a well-thought-out, humorous and tasteful message in such a classy, creative and fun package. I love that not only has Barack Obama inspired people of all walks across America, he has inspired a civil tone as well.
