Sing For Change

Well the video is no longer available publically. The cult leaders  must have realized that they drew too much attention to themselves and their exploitation of these kids…

The people that filmed and promoted this are pros, NBC good of the mass media to stay unbiased, far from grassroots if you ask me, I think this was a planned PR Stunt by the Obama Camp… I am curious that since this ADVERTISEMENT was created by NBC executive, does this violate FEC rules?

 

About Us
Sing for Change was a confluence of hard work, good will, and shared vision.  Inspired by ideas raised at a grassroots Obama fundraiser, a music teacher, Kathy Sawada, and the children composed and rehearsed the songs in less than two weeks.  Several musicians heard of the effort and volunteered to accompany the children.  Parents and older siblings designed and provided the T-Shirts and the banner.  There’s a first for everything, but rarely do so many firsts come together at once:  for the children and their parents, this is their first performance, first video, first banner, and first involvement with grassroots work on a presidential campaign.   

As Sunday approached, a neighbor volunteered a home. Production wizards got wind of the project and offered their help in recordingit.  The likes of Jeff Zucker, Holly Schiffer, Peter Rosenfeld, Darin Moran, Jean Martin, Andy Blumenthal, and Nick Phoenix rearranged schedules to participate. Holly Schiffer was able to get three High Definition cameras (Panasonic HVX250’s), and an AVID editing facility. When Jeff Zucker went to pick up the camera package, Ted Schilowitz happened to be there and offered a RED camera set up on a SteadiCam.

What we accomplished in a few hours on a Sunday afternoon embodies the nature of the Obama campaign:  its grassroots inspiration, its inclusiveness, its community building.  People pitched in quickly for a cause that resonated with them.  There were not many conditions: “Think this is a good idea? Want to help? Great. Sunday at 12:00.” At the heart of the project were 22 children and their music. The willingness of all involved to come together for them was a testament to our hope, unity, courage, joy and belief in the future represented by these children.

Since the Video is not available, here is the next best thing

The paragraph and lyrics below are from Obama’s official campaign website. The video was produced by NBC Universal CEO Jeff Zucker, Holly Schiffer, Peter Rosenfeld, Darin Moran, Jean Martin, Andy Blumenthal, and Nick Phoenix.

“Sing for Change chronicles a recent Sunday afternoon in Venice, when 22 children, ages 5-12, gathered to sing original songs in the belief that their singing would lift up our communities for the coming election.”

WE’RE GONNA CHANGE THE WORLD
Music and lyrics by Lily Campbell

We’re gonna spread happiness
We’re gonna spread freedom
Obama’s gonna change it
Obama’s gonna lead ‘em

We’re gonna change it
And rearrange it
We’re gonna change the world.

SING FOR CHANGE
Music and lyrics by Kathy Sawada

Now’s the moment, lift each voice to sing
Sing with all your heart!
For our children, for our families,
Nations all joined as one.
Sing for joy and sing abundant peace,
Courage, justice, hope!
Sing together, hold each precious hand,
Lifting each other up;
Sing for vision, sing for unity,
Lifting our hearts to Sing!

YES WE CAN
Music and lyrics by Kathy Sawada

Yes we can
Lift each other up
In peace, in love, in hope
Change! Change!

Now I discuss politics with my children and try to educated them. Obama wants to exploit them. Children at this age range do not know enough to have a truly informed view of the world and how politics work. They are being indoctrinated. From Barack’s website a glimpse into the future brainwashing of our youth. Funny how his camp proclaims he is providing kids a place to vote for the first time. My children participate in voting at their schools, I remember growing up having votes in my schools… This is not new, his tactic of exploiting children is…
