(CNN) – The famous “Yes We Can” video that spliced together clips of Barack Obama’s New Hampshire primary night speech and set it to music with celebrities singing along has won an Emmy award.
Produced by Black Eyed Peas frontman Will.i.am, the video won in the first time "New Approaches in Daytime Entertainment” category that “recognizes innovative production techniques and the use of media enhancement to support content.”
The video became an internet sensation when it first appeared shortly before Super Tuesday. Among the many celebrities who lent their voices to t project, which was filmed in black and white, are John Legend, Scarlett Johansson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
Obama's campaign often plays the video before he takes the stage at rallies.
BARACK THE VOTE PEOPLE... :)
I guess this is what we have become... politics and entertainment coming together... this makes me sick...
YEAH! OBAMA ALL THE WAY!
I pray Sen Obama is able to be present to accept it with those individuals who are responsible for the video. I applaud Will i am and all the other celebrities. I LOVE THE VIDEO. THE VOICE PART ALONG IS EMOTIONALLY MOVING.
Grats to Will.i.am. Good job man.
Wow...this is awesome!
Wow! That Video deserves even more!
The big party will be on November 05.
America is invited.
Obama 08 & 12
Yes we can and we will.
He should dedicate the Emmy to Obama's speechwriter.
Obama is making history everywhere and this is the smartest and most beautiful video with the faces of America. This video brought me to tears knowing "Yes We Can", together we can.
Obama Is Like A Big Rock Star And Mccain Is Like A Big Rock!
McCain preferred small government, which means he does not have to do anything when he is in White House, he will use White House as his retire home, his nursing home with No.1 benefit, his wife will get special connection for her company, simple as it.
Congratulations to all those involved in the video. Yes We Can! Yes We Will!
You go Barack, this video is awesome. There is also a gospel recording by John P. Kee. It is a great too.
Everyone should get a copy
CNN, I applaud you for this one. Just keep up the good work. We love positive news.

It's not only his video that won an award. Barack Obama will win the highest award anyone in this country can win and he'll do it without music. He will win with honesty, integrety, hope,and a vision that this country can come out of the depts of dispair that President George W. Bush has put us all in.
