Something huge and historic has been lost amidst all of the mudslinging and negativity of this unprecedented election cycle: we're on the verge of electing the first woman president of the United States!
As the father of two millennial daughters and the uncle of four millennial nieces, I'm particularly excited about what this means for them, their friends and our country. And to channel that excitement, I joined together with some friends to create a series of three music videos, the first of which we're releasing today via our Patriotic Artists & Creatives PAC (www.thecreativepac.com) celebrating this remarkable milestone (which of course will only happen if people actually go out and vote for Hillary!)
We're all feeling pretty exhausted and anxious from the unending onslaught of depressing attack ads. So we decided to create something upbeat and positive to counter that negativity and showcase the amazing achievements of women in U.S. and the world.
Because truly strong men respect and admire strong women and treat them with the dignity they deserve - and they should be celebrated for all that they are. This song was originally written as a calypso song in 1936 and the message is even truer today than it was then; men are smart, but the women are smarter (that's right!)
Please share our music video to all of your friends, relatives and co-workers on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and your other social media so we can get our message out as far and wide and generate some positive vibes over the next two weeks going into Election Day!
