After being on the set of this video I’m not surprised it turned out as good as it did. It’s the kind of imagery that triggers the imagination and makes you consider the duality in all of us. When you’re done watching it check out the episode of The Q Side where we take you behind the scenes with Janina to see what went into making it and hear the moving story behind the song.
Barack Obama being re-elected as the POTUS is obviously something to celebrate (as you can see in the picture above, I definitely got some of that in). I got a bit nervous over the course of the campaign about whether the outcome would be as favorable. Mitt Romney wasn’t a push over and the frustrations felt by a lot of Americans can’t be underestimated. Thankfully, America got it right and now Barack has 4 more years to fulfill his promises. Personally, I’m looking at the next 4 years of my life as an opportunity to exemplify everything I want to see in Barack. How are you planning to step up and be the change you want to see?
