Supporters Debut New Obama Video, “Forward”

Bruce Springsteen may be singing a hastily written Obama campaign song on the trail — he’s due to visit Pennsylvania for a campaign appearance on Saturday — but a group of entertainers supporting the president’s reelection has created a video, “Forward,” in hopes that it will be the same kind of viral hit that Will.i.am’s “Yes, We Can” was in 2008.

Ne Yo, the Goo Goo Dolls’ Johnny Rzeznik, Herbie Hancock, Delta Rae and Natasha Bedingfield appear in the video. It was written by Gregg Alexander and Danielle Brisebois of the New Radicals, as well as Fred Goldring, exec producer of the “Yes, We Can” video and a member of the President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities. John Shanks produced the record, and Graham Henman produced and directed the video.
