A new song and video by the same producers who created the viral 2008 video "Yes We Can" was posted Friday.
"Forward" is also performed by a cast of celebrity musicians, including Ne-Yo, Goo Goo Dolls' Johnny Reznik, Delta Rae and Natasha Bettingfield, plus Herbie Hancock, who also appeared in "Yes We Can."
Obama's voice rolls over the opening notes of the song, and it's packed with Obama campaign slogans. But it was not produced by any political organization or in coordination with the Obama campaign, according to a disclaimer on Forwardsong.com. The song is available for download on iTunes, and proceeds benefit arts education programs.
