Notes: 
Uploaded to Clinton's Facebook page on June 24, 2015. Percussion played on a variety of toms, shakers, and cymbals drives the underscore. The piano outlines a simple repeated chord progression throughout the entire advertisement. The underscore begins quiet, but later features a dramatic dynamic change after a brief break in the music in which only the piano plays sustained chords. This dynamic change is facilitated by the introduction of multiple violins, which play short even notes in unison that accent the pulse. The underscore is hopeful and evokes emotion by complimenting Clinton’s narration without distracting the audience.
