With the likes of Weird Al Yankovich, a local musician is leaving his mark on the music world. At least on YouTube, anyway. R&B musician Damon Hamilton’s spoof of the uber-popular Korean phenom, Gangnam Style, has gotten well over half a million views on the video sharing site.
It’s something that came as sort of a surprise to the professional musician who says the spoof was more of just an experiement than a serious attempt at music.
“I made pretty music for years with not much bite until five days ago, when I created a silly spoof, one that’s not even becoming of my music skill, when I suddenly went viral on YouTube,” Hamilton told Philly.com.
Hamilton’s legitimate musical talent can be seen at weddings with a band called Monte Carlo and his serious seven-member R&B ensemble, the Damon Hamilton Project.
But, in the mean time, we can all enjoy “Obama Style.”
