Everyone knows that with the right people in your corner, anything is possible. That is exactly the case when it comes to celebrities hitting the campaign trail to support President Obama in his re-election efforts.
POTUS has got an impressive 181 (and counting) stars who have is back. Athletes, musicians and actors are all lending a hand – knocking on doors, calling constituents who reside in swing-states and participating in rallies alongside him.
This past Saturday, Stevie Wonder played an unannounced concert for voters waiting in line to vote early in Cleveland. Wonder opened a rally for Obama by rocking the arena at the University of Cincinnati with a rendition of “Keep on Running.” Songwriter John Legend, actor Laurence Fishburne, and congressman and civil rights hero John Lewis, D-Ga., were among those who went to Ohio to lead a “Souls to the Polls” effort with local churches. Danny DeVito and members of the FX sitcom “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” have canvassed neighborhoods in Wisconsin, made phone calls and visited colleges in the state.
Also included: Ice Cube, Jay-Z, Lady Gaga, John Legend, John Mellencamp, Jason Mraz, Maya Angelou, Chris Rock, Justin Long, Jon Hamm, Maggie Gyllenaal, Chanel Iman, Katy Perry, Bruce Springsteen and Sheryl Crow.
Celebrity sells. Now get off your butt and go vote.
