Soul Fixin'

Seal's Ode To Obama
Seal can now be added to the very long list of artists supporting Barack Obama. Seal's endorsement comes via his latest music video for his remake of Sam Cooke's epic 'A Change Is Gonna Come.' A fitting song for a candidate that is promising a change. The emotional display of support features various clips of Obama campaign speeches and images and clips that touch on various social issues that plague the world and our country. By the way, Seal does a pretty damn good job covering the 44 year old soul classic. His upcoming album, Soul, will feature Seal's take on a slew of soul gems including Harold Melvin & The Blue Note's 'If You Don't Know Me By Now', Al Green's "Here I Am (Come And Take Me) " and Ann Peebles "I Can't Stand The Rain." Soul  hits stores in few weeks, November 11 to be exact. In the meantime, enjoy this ode to Barack. Barack > McCain. Barack The Vote on November 4.
