    iReport Film Festival: Campaign 2008!

    Ukes for Obama


    In 2008, "Uke Can Make A Difference!"


    That’s the motto of Ukes for Obama, a group of ukulele players from New York City who banded together in the summer of 2008 to campaign for Senator Barack Obama.


    The grassroots group met every week in Manhattan's Madison Square Park to jam on their ukes. Now they use the Internet to reach voters around the country (and throughout the world) with their upbeat songs and videos.


    This short film, entitled "Ukes for Obama," is a look at the group's official campaign video, "Aloha Mama, We're Voting For Obama," as well as the recording of their song about voter registration, "Vote for Change Dot Com" and features interviews with the group's three co-founders.
