Track: Goldsmith – Found That Grace (Obama Speech Sample)
America as a whole, including you and I, are aware of the tragic events surrounding the June 17th massacre at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina. The senseless acts of one disturbed individual that left nine innocent people deceased. Today, the leader of our country President Barack Obama descended upon Charleston to eulogize and preach to a large crowd. (View Here). After several people jeered in support, Obama broke into a home of ‘Amazing Grace’ to utter surprise. Many people have urged and beckoned that someone step up and sample the speech. Well, that is exactly what Goldsmith and Suzanne Sheer have done.
The song samples Obama’s performance of Saving Grace at Reverend Pinckney’s memorial service. The entire song was built within 24 hours following Reverend Pinckney’s funeral. Found That Grace is produced by a seventeen year-old Nico Fazio and assisted by Grammy award winning producer Don Cheegro, on the keys and bass. Suzanne Sheer (hook) is a singer/song-writer from Pittsburgh who went to high school with Goldsmith and lives in the same neighborhood as him in Philadelphia.
