Anohni unveils his new moving video for “Obama”

The transgender musician Anohni publishes a fourth video from his last album “Hopelessness”. A video adressed to the President of the United States himself.

After 21 years within her former-band Antony & The Johnsons, the American Antony Hogarty made her transition to become Anohni, a transgender and committed female artist. She released videos for almost all of the tracks from her first solo album Helplessness (the great I don't love you anymore and Crisis on top), and now finally unveils one to illustrate her most political song, directly addressed to Barack Obama. A minimalistic and overwhelming supplication that aims to convince the current president of the United States to liberate Chelsea Manning, a transgender ex-soldier emprisoned in 2013 for disclosing confidential informations.
