New Radicals will do it again for the first time in more than 20 years, including “You Get You Give” as part of the Biden-Harris administration’s virtual “Parade Across America” event.
The single revived on the 2020 campaign trail as the soon-to-be-sung song for 1998 Vice President-Elect husband Doug Amhoff – the soon-to-be second gentleman during rallies.
“If there is one thing on earth that will possibly bring us a band together, if only for one day, it is our hope that our song may be the tiniest beacon of light in such a dark time,” frontman Greig Alexander said in a statement. .
“America knows in its heart that things will brighten up again with the new administration and the actual plan of vaccines on the way. This is the message of the song… about to pull through this world. “
The hit also has a close connection with the Biden family: in Joe Biden’s 2017 autobiography, Promise Me, Dad, He wrote that “You Go Kya Tum Do Do” became a family rally “theme song” for son Bue Biden during his fight against cancer.
Biden wrote, “During breakfast, Beo would often listen to what I think was his theme song, ‘You Get Me’ by New Radicals.” “Even though Beau never stopped fighting and his desire to live The strongest was – I think he knew that this day might come. The words of the song are as follows: This whole damn world can be shattered. You’ll be fine, follow your heart. “
Alexander said, “Performing the song again after such a long time is a huge honor because of the deep respect between all of us for the military service of Buu and such high expectations for unity and normalcy Joe and Kamala in our country. Will bring it back to this time of crisis. “
