L’ex Presidente degli Stati Uniti d’America Barack Obama pubblica sulla sua pagina FB una playlist di 20 brani dal titolo A Promised Land, che motiva così:
«Music has always played an important role throughout my life—and that was especially true during my presidency. While reviewing my notes ahead of debates, I’d listen to Jay-Z’s “My 1st Song” or Frank Sinatra’s “Luck Be a Lady.” Throughout our time in the White House, Michelle and I invited artists like Stevie Wonder and Gloria Estefan to conduct afternoon workshops with young people before performing an evening show in the East Room. And there were all sorts of performances I’ll always remember—like Beyoncé performing “At Last” for our first dance at our inauguration, Paul McCartney serenading Michelle in the East Room with, “Michelle” and Bob Dylan flashing me a grin before vanishing after his performance of “Times They Are a-Changin.” So in honor of my book, A Promised Land, coming out tomorrow, I thought I’d put together a playlist with some of those songs. Hope you enjoy it». (Barack Obama)
Una compilation di 1 ora e 39 minuti che include brani di Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Beyoncé, Beatles, Gloria Estefan, Miles Davis, Sade, U2, John Coltrane e altri ancora.
