Yes We Can Obama Musical In Germany!


It is not the first time President Obama has been the inspired subject of a musical play. Last year, “Obama On My Mind” in London and “Obama: The Musical” in Nairobi, Kenya premiered. Barack Obama can now add a third musical creation to his tribute entitled “Hope — the Obama Musical Story” premiering this weekend in Germany. It starts 20 years ago when he was a community organizer and leads all the way to his presidency, concentrating mostly on his electoral campaign. Songs with quotes of politicians’ blundered speeches during the U.S presidential campaign of 2008 will be sung along with John McCain and Sarah Palin. There will even be duets with Hillary Clinton and love songs from Obama to wife Michelle.

How sweet!

The piece is set in Obama’s hometown of Chicago and meant to show “the great, collective emotion” there was for change for a better life”.

The 30 performers involved are ”rehearsing 12 hours a day” to perfect their kicks, Jimmie Wilson who plays Obama enthused.

Audience members can even get involved with the mini drums they will have built in their chairs. To attend the blessed event, you can buy tickets for the premiere online and only the premiere since it is being used as an ‘interest’ indicator.

The tickets range from euro40 to euro149 ($58 and $215).

Would you see a musical rendition of Yes We Can?
