Will.I.Am Declares 'It's A New Day'
Support for President-Elect Barack Obama has come from all corners of the globe and all arenas, from Hollywood to sports to music. The latest wave of support comes from Black Eyed Peas frontman Will.I.Am, who recorded the track 'Yes We Can' earlier this year. In the wake of Obama's historic election, Will.I.Am created a follow-up to 'Yes We Can,' 'It's A New Day.' The video features cameos from noteworthy Obama supporters and footage from Obama's big moment in Chicago. While 'It's A New Day' captures a historic moment in our nation's history, we can not allow ourselves to live in that moment and became complacent. We have to turn that moment into a movement. A movement for CHANGE. A portion of Dr. King's dream manifested itself in the election of Obama. It is now up to us to make sure the rest of his dream becomes a reality.
