    The additional info at the YouTube address:

    "Sing for Change chronicles a recent Sunday afternoon, 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. Light, hope, courage and love shine through these nonvoting children who believe that their very best contribution to the Obama campaign is to sing.

    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 recording it. 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 Steadi Cam.

    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.

    We are offering the video to everyone, the Obama campaign and all media with high hopes that we can all join together to Sing for Change."

    I wonder if this thread would have been started if it was about a video showing folks singing in favor of McCain.

    Come on, folks. Campaign songs have been a staple of American politics for a long time. Two that I remember were in a race for Texas governor back in 1968.

    One for John Hill started out with: "John Hill will be governor of Texas 'cause the people say he will..." I don't remember the rest except that it ended with "John Hill will."

    The other was for Eugene Locke that simply said: "Eugene Locke will be governor of Texas, the governor of Texas will be Eugene Locke".

    BTW, Preston Smith won the gubernatorial race that year. My parents told me we were distantly related to him. :)

    Pretty sickening.

    Children will sing whatever the authority figures in the life tell them to.

    Shameless indoctrination by adults.

    Sounds like a rhetorical off topic question to me.

    Why don't you entertain us all and tell us what you think, if it even happened at all.:rolleyes:

    Children, singing praise to the dear leader, and not one mention of the great country he intends to lead.

    North Korea, anyone ?


    And Ken says.....
    I wonder if this thread would have been started if it was about a video showing folks singing in favor of McCain.

    And I said, in the O/P.....



    If a republican did this, I'd be accusing them of brainwashing.


    Selective sentence ignorations ?

    So when children sing in church, especially the really young ones, is that brainwashing?

    We have a video as proof that theses children are being politically indoctrinated.

    What proof do you have that you ever wore a Goldwater button?

    If they're singing about a presidential candidate, yes. Besides, only Catholics & some protestants make their children perform rituals in church. Any church I would associate with, would not force children to do something they have no way of understanding.

    You're supporting a candidate that advocates the murder of children.

    How does that tie in with your being a "follower of Christ Jesus"?

    Your actions speak louder than your "word", as always.
