During the conversation, Will expressed his views on the importance of education for kids in America and its influence on the future of our country. And, even though Will is a big President Obama supporter, he did encourage everyone, even Governor Romney supporters to go out and vote. Listen to the interview below and, remember, Thursday, November 2nd, is the final day for early voting and election day is Tuesday, November 6th, make sure to VOTE!!!
J.B.: Now Will, in your opinion. Let’s say someone doesn’t identify with either of the two most publicized candidates. What do you think those folks should do?
Will.I.Am: You have to find one thing that you support and you want to see a resolution for. Education is the thing that, to me, the most important thing America needs.
J.B.: Will.I.Am from the Black Eyed Peas with us and yes Will I agree with you on that education issue.
Will.I.AM: Not educating our students to be innovators, to make the next iTunes, Apple, to make the next Facebook and Google. All those people were educated. Right now we’re not educating our students. So what is America going to do ten years from now? What are we going to innovate 20 years from now? That comes from educating and investing in education. I can’t express how important it is for people to vote right now.
J.B. Oh, oh yea. Here in Las Vegas our votes as a swing state will count more than ever. Thank you Will.I.Am of the Black Eyed Peas for joining us today. Reminding everybody that early voting ends tomorrow. You be good my friend and we will see you next time you are in Vegas alright?
Will.I.Am: Thank you so much.
