Obama Harmonized by Chassol

We all remember when Barack Obama showed his singer talent during his campaign speech in Apollo Theater in Harlem, New York, this past month. Al Green was attending and the President started singing I’m so in love with you proving that he could actually sing. This was enough to motivate pianist and musician Chassol to harmonize his entire speech. Surprizingly, thanks to Chassol’s ingenuity and to Obama’s flowing public speaker style, the latter changes into a new kind of a political Gil Scott Heron. A must-see and a must-hear. 


On se souvient tous quand Barack Obama a montré son talent de chanteur pendant son discours de campagne à l’Apollo Theater de Harlem à New York, le mois dernier. Al Green était présent et le Président a commencé à chanter I’m so in love with you prouvant qu’il savait vraiment chanter. Ce fut suffisant pour motiver le pianiste et musicien Chassol à harmoniser son discours entier. Étonnamment, grâce à l’ingéniosité de Chassol et à l’aisance d’orateur d’Obama, ce dernier se transforme en une sorte de nouveau Gil Scott Heron politque. A voir et à écouter absolument.
