Sara Bareilles: Seriously

This is a song called “Seriously” written by Sara Bareilles and performed by Leslie Odom Jr. It’s supposed to be an imagining of what then president Barack Obama might have been thinking during the 2016 election but was not at liberty to say. Its a song with fantastic groove and a clear, non-subtle message. There is also an accompanying This American Life episode associated with it, that’s worth a listen. (Act 4 focuses on the song.)
