Ryan J. Davis and Adam Wagner presented "Broadway For Barack: The Voices Of Hope", a one-night only benefit concert for Senator Barack Obama's Presidential Campaign, featuring young songwriters & Broadway singers united for real change, on Monday, February 11 at 9:30 PM at The Zipper Theatre (336 W. 37th St)Producer Adam Wagner said: "Barack Obama is a well-made song. He starts out in dorm rooms, an under appreciated gem shared amongst friends - the verses and choruses of his speeches force us to pause and imagine. Humming along, the Voices of Hope spread the gospel, and soon the country cannot help embracing the sweet melody of "Yes, we can." Ryan J. Davis added: "I'm thrilled we're announcing today, Super Tuesday, as voters from all over the country are casting their own votes for change. We're happy to be a part of that chorus." Davis has campaigned for Mr. Obama in New Hampshire and South Carolina.
