(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.
How come Will.I.Am never made a video for any white Presidential candidates before? You would think someone into politics enough to produce a video would make one each election, or at least actively support their candidate each year.
Anyway, the Black Eyed Peas have sucked since they sold out to the NBA in '05.

Hey CNN, I have good news for your:
McCain's "Bomb, bomb, bomb" has big chance to win the next Emmy!!
Whoop-tee-do. Who cares. More brainwashing from Obama's camp. Will people ever learn?!?!?!? I guess not.
Sweet. The man's just at the CENTER of media awards, it seems.
YAAAAAYYYY! Everything is going great for Obama! :0)
Joyce in Florida, awww poor you, why don;t you take care of grandpa McCain ?? Don't be so sour.
We are going into a new era, it is called No country for Old Men...
yes we can,unh!yes we can,unh unh!my own hillbilly hip-hop.cool,huh? obama '08
.............. ROCK ON AMERICA........... VOTE OBAMA............2008
To I am now an independent: you are such a spoil sport, a kill-joy, this is something positive-go to bed, and take your negative republican attitude with you....
Seems like the Chris Matthews syndrome is catching. Lot s of legs quivering out there.
Sad that some bloggers see negativety in anything positive. Do you not have anything better to do then to sit at your computer and criticize every positive blog??
I think it is fantastic that Obama is receiving this attention from such a broad spectrum of society...he's the man to bring this country together and bring about the generational change needed for the twenty forst century..
Yes WE can...
Obama will win many prizes far more important than an Emmy.
All we have to do is give him a chance to lead us.
Are we there yet? Are we at a point in history to put racial bias aside and allow the most qualified candidate lead us in these times of desparate need?
I sure hope so.
Joyce in Florida, give it a rest, if you have nothing but negative things to say, just go away!!!!!!!! It is so time to knock it off. Go to a McCain rally or something to cheer yourself up!!!!!!!!!!!
Great job, Will I am. You and the artists deserve it. Congratulations to all of you.
Announcer: And the winner for the video that only mattered because some celebrities are in there......
Announcer: Senator Obama and the campaigners!
I cried when I first saw that video....it was so moving and something my inner being hopes for. Equality, unity, and equal rights and justice
I have this song on my MP3 player under Gospel and on my computer and my kids know the words to the song
Yes We Can!
YA HOOOOOOOOO BARACK OBAMA 08!
Shows what a great showman he is. If you like that kind of thing in a top government official.
i think it really says something when only high school graduated people don't like obama..the college graduates would know what is good for america as they are smarter. only stupid or rich people support mccain. this is the truth
If the American people are looking for a young, appealing and charismatic performer with a great voice, may I suggest tuning in to American Idol?
If we are looking for a president, then John McCain's our man.
Americans for McCain '08
Obama,the lion, Commander in Chief,will keep Americans safe at home and abroad.
