Will.i.am Celebrates Obama Win With Song
Rapper will.i.am is commemorating Barack Obama's historic win in the U.S. presidential election by releasing a new song and video.
The Black Eyed Peas star spent Election Day (04Nov08) editing his new track, It's A New Day - a tribute to the American people.
Democrat Obama became the first African American president of the U.S. - and the Heartbreaker hitmaker is calling on his fellow celebrities to mark the monumental election by contributing to the project.
He says, "This was inspired by America. It's about Obama winning, and really paying tribute to those people who are responsible for that happening, and that's the American people.
"The whole thing is really for people to leave testimonials... to create a page and leave testimonials on how they feel about this American accomplishment."
The new song and its accompanying video are scheduled to hit the internet on video-sharing website Dipdive on Wednesday (05Nov08).
