Acapella song for Hillary Clinton
BdChronicle Life Desk:
Celebrities from different parts of the media came together and created an acapella song called “Fight Song” for Hillary Clinton’s campaign. The song is now being considered as the unofficial anthem for the Democrat campaign.
Actress-turned-director, Elizabeth Banks co-produced the video with Bruce Cohen who is well known for political activism and also for directing American Beauty.
Over 35 celebrities participated in this video and contributions from fans were included as well. Australian sensation Sia made a surprise appearance as well.
The video was shot in Ney York and L.A. The video is directed by Mike Thompkins. Banks said that the video was inspired by the movie Pitch Perfect that she produced.
Some has blamed the video to be boring and one dimensional but participation of people of colour and members of the LGBT community makes it an intersectional and inclusive video.
