Regional Mexican singer/songwriter Juan Carlos Sanchez (stage name El Sinaloa 21) has scored a hit with "El Corrido de Barack Obama," the first corrido (a popular narrative song form in Mexico) dedicated to a President of the United States. It's also on its way to becoming the first corrido with an alternate English language version.
