'Yes We Can': will.i.am Talks Change
will.i.am was interviewed on National Public Radio this weekend and discussed how Barack Obama inspired him to produce the song and video "Yes We Can," and touched on the most important issues facing the incoming president. Education, green jobs, the environment: "It's not like the technology isn't there... it's there," he told NPR's Scott Simon. "And when I get solar panels on my house, then I'm totally carbon free."
will.i.am performs tonight at the 2009 Green Inaugural Ball at The Smithsonian's Donald W. Reynolds Center for American Art and Portraiture. He also appeared at Live Earth 07.07.07, in London, with the Black Eyed Peas.
