Village People’s Victor Willis Says ‘YMCA’ Is a Song for All Americans

The Village People’s classic disco anthem “YMCA” has been a near-constant presence at Donald Trump’s rallies for years now. But this weekend, crowds across America sang “YMCA” to mock the president, and to cheer Joe Biden’s victory, in a reclamation of sorts. Victor Willis founded the Village People, and he plays the police officer. When asked how he feels about the song being used for political rallies, Willis said, “everybody likes it, you don’t have to be Democrat or Republican.”
