"Keep On Pushing" is a 1964 single by The Impressions. The single became the group's sixth Top 40 single, and a Top 10 Pop smash, peaking at number ten. It went to number one for two weeks on the Cash Box R&B chart.[1] It was one of the main anthems of the Civil Rights Movement in America during the turbulent 1960s and was the title song of The Impressions' Top 10 hit album, Keep On Pushing.

Decades later, the song was used as the theme to the 2004 Democratic National Convention keynote address by then-Illinois State Senator Barack Obama, who endorsed U.S. Senator John Kerry for President.
