I remember getting a call from @iamwill saying he was working on a song for Barack Obama after he had just lost New Hampshire and I remember being so nervous when o got to the studio. He asked me to bring my axe (That's music language for your instrument) so I packed up my violin & drove swiftly to the @recordplant studio off Santa Monica. I walked into the studio & there were cameras set up & I was sooooo sick to my stomach because if you recall at this time the battle was heated between he & @hillaryclinton Will could sense the fear & he then told me "no bro I took his speak from when he lost New Hampshire (now known as the "Yes we can" speech) & set it to music. It was brilliant! I pulled out my violin & laid my part down several times & was done. Will then pulled me into a private lounge & told me that the Hillary Campaign had just reached out to him & wanted to take the peas to dinner. He had never met Barack nor knew anyone from the campaign. And he was torn as this was day 2 of "Yes We Can" & Hillary had just reached out. I don't know how but God always seems to give me the exact words in times like this & if you remember correctly Hillary's narrative at this time was about "Hard Work" & that's what it would take to get change done. Out of nowhere the words came to me. I said "Will Hillary is talking about "Hard work" that's perspiration... you've put this whole thing together because of "Inspiration" I believed if he thought about his heart would lead him to the choice to give him the most peace. Well the rest is History. And I will never forget waking up on my birthday to an email from then Senator Barack Obama thanking me for my efforts which were caused by his inspiration. I took the charge he gave the American people in Chicago when he accepted the nomination that we all had to do our part to make change in our great nation. Even tho I've had the access to see our out going President. I never used it for the sit down. I took the charge. I'll get my sit down post presidency & exchange battle stories on the things I've done as a citizen to create change. Thanks BO 🙏#HePutAnSInsteadOfZ #IWasntTrippin #HeGotTheEmailRightTho
