(Video) Obama kids “Sing for Change”

In a creepy, and somewhat odd YouTube video surfacing today, a group of elementary aged kids were assembled to sing some kind of Obama “Singe for Change” tune. Apparently the video had backing of some major media big shots like Jeff Zucker, President of NBC Universal.

Without further ado, here is the mentioned video:

The paragraph and lyrics below are from Obama’s official campaign website. The video was produced by NBC Universal CEO Jeff Zucker, Holly Schiffer, Peter Rosenfeld, Darin Moran, Jean Martin, Andy Blumenthal, and Nick Phoenix.

“Sing for Change chronicles a recent Sunday afternoon in Venice, 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.”

Music and lyrics by Lily Campbell

We’re gonna spread happiness
We’re gonna spread freedom
Obama’s gonna change it
Obama’s gonna lead ’em

We’re gonna change it
And rearrange it
We’re gonna change the world.

Music and lyrics by Kathy Sawada

Now’s the moment, lift each voice to sing
Sing with all your heart!
For our children, for our families,
Nations all joined as one.
Sing for joy and sing abundant peace,
Courage, justice, hope!
Sing together, hold each precious hand,
Lifting each other up;
Sing for vision, sing for unity,
Lifting our hearts to Sing!

Music and lyrics by Kathy Sawada

Yes we can
Lift each other up
In peace, in love, in hope
Change! Change!

I find this somewhat disturbing since I tend to frown upon children being used as political pawns, by any candidate for any purpose. That being said, this was not done as part of the Obama campaign, they had nothing to do with it.

Still, these kids can’t vote, they’re repeating what has been fed to them.

Sound off, is it creepy or just something so gosh darn peachy cute you can’t stand watching it without getting misty eyed? I’m going with the former.
