A Calypso for Barack by Mighty Sparrow

This dude Barack is really pulling people together. Here's a song by the Mighty Sparrow, a legendary Calypso singer from Trinidad. I consider him to be one of the greatest emcees who have ever lived. Check this tune set to a video montage of brother Obama.

Hey been following your blog for a minute, to say that I was pleasantly surprised to hear some of my heritage is an understatement. I grew up on him with my folks playing his records. His voice hasn't changed a bit I can still remember riding in a beat up station wagon with my mom playing his tunes. Anyway you got a devout fan for life. Keep u the good work!

Thanks for supporting the blog. I do it for folks like you.

Sparrow is really the man. My mom is a Trini to the bone, so I too grew up listening to him.
