We believe so much in the candidacy of Barack Obama that we’ve written a campaign song and we’d like to share it with you. As a couple of striking screenwriters and a singer-composer, we wanted to to make the case in an unconventional way.
“Ready to Believe” is our song and it’s available at this URL: http://www.cherishalexander.com/ready_to_believe/ At that web-page, you can download the song as an MP3 by right-clicking, and you can also download a PDF of the song lyrics at the site.
A version of “Ready to Believe” with photos of Barack is also now viewable on Google Video (larger, grainier) and You Tube (smaller, cleaner): You Tube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RWE_sWRwLtc
Google Video at http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=3921975648093880406&pr=goog-sl
If you like the song and want the best quality, we suggest you get the MP3 version. It’s clean and crisp (sounds tasty on your iPod) and is superior to the Google/YouTube versions which sound a little tinny for our tastes. If you would like us to directly e-mail you the song MP3 and the lyrics PDF, please write us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send it off to you ASAP as well.
The singer-composer of “Ready to Believe” is Cherish Alexander. The striking writers-lyricists are Jackie Zabel and Bryce Zabel. And the music producers who pulled it all together are Cherish Alexander and Damian Valentine.
We know the hour is late and we’ve mailed this to people who may even support other candidates. If you support Barack Obama, however, we’d urge you to join us and forward this e-mail to as many people as you can (and urge them to do the same), put it on Facebook or any networking sites you belong to, and get the song to your local Obama campaign and media outlets. Whatever you decide to do, do it right now because for this to work and actually help motivate voters for Tuesday’s election, there’s just no time to over-think it. Imagine if a million people could hear this song before the primaries.
We appreciate the time in your busy lives you take to listen and hope you’ll help us support Barack in the remaining hours — musically and politically. Thank you!
