Jeannie Ortega reacted to news that Barack Obama has been elected the 44th U.S. President in a bulletin to her MySpace friends (@jeannieortega). The Brooklyn R&B singer tells readers:
It’s a new day in America! Whether your chioce was Obama or not you must embrace that you’re living in a very historic time period.
This Country has elected the 1st African American president! (well half African American lol)
What Martin Luther fought so hard for, what was probably a glorious day for Abraham Lincoln to see… We have lived to see!
I praise God for the experience, and I just pray that regardless of anything that the Lords will be done for this Country and us all!
