Barack Obama inspired Seals new singleNovember 18th, 2008 - 12:30 pm ICT by ANI
London, November 18 (ANI): British singer Seal has revealed that Barack Obamas election as the next President of the United States inspired him to record soul legend Sam Cookes song A Change Is Gonna Come.
The Kiss From A Rose hitmaker says that the mood of optimism across America during the historic presidential election was what influenced his new single.
“The initial inspiration came from what I perceived to be a collective consciousness of people, not only in America but around the world, saying, ”Look, the whole place is in turmoil, the economy’’s in the toilet, people are reckless, frustrated and irresponsible”. And I think the collective got together realising there’’s something that needed to change,” the Daily Express quoted him as telling Billboard. (ANI)
