By Sergio Published on .

Inspired by Barack Obama’s impassioned speech on the eve of the New Hampshire primary, Will.I.Am of the Black Eyed Peas produced “YesWeCan,” a musical response video. Recorded over the course of two days at Ether and Record Plant in Los Angeles, the video is a black-and-white reinterpretation of the senator’s memorable address performed by 35 entertainer-activists, including actor Scarlett Johansson, athlete Kareem Abdul Jabbar, and rapper Common. The video has reached 10 million-plus views through YesWeCanSong.com and over 4.5 million views through YouTube.
