Four years ago, we reveled in President Obama‘s attempt to change the heart of America; young voters, hopeful senior citizens, war veterans, families and some of our favorite celebrities were in awe of his sleek and relatable aura. One of those celebrities was the harmonica-totting, heart-calling music icon, Stevie Wonder.
Coincidentally, feelings were mutual as The Commander In Chief concluded several of his speeches during the 2008 presidential election with the 1970 No. 1 hit, “Signed, Sealed, Delivered”. Today, Wonder reminds us why he still has the hope to “Keep Moving Forward” in this newly-penned song, produced by DJ Spinna and co-written by Gordon Chambers.
“It’s your right. Go out and vote! Let’s Keep Moving Forward.”
I’m sure Stevie’s intentions were good when creating this particular song, so I’ll politely press play on his greatest hits and smile because it’s Tuesday.
In related news, Ne-Yo Natasha Bedingfield, Herbie Hancock, Johnny Rzeznik and Delta Rae also vow to keep moving “Forward” with President Obama in the grassroots tune.
