World famous singer and proud North Carolinian, James Taylor, has just announced that he will play five free concerts in Charlotte, Asheville, Chapel Hill, Raleigh and Wilmington to help support Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama. Obama has received oodles of celebrity endorsements and Taylor hopes that his influence might help the swing state vote democratric this election – something that hasn’t happened in over 30 years.
“I’ve always been proud of my North Carolina roots,” says Taylor. “As this crucial election approaches I am honored to join the efforts of the Obama Campaign here in my beloved Tar Heel home. It thrills me that North Carolina has become a ‘battleground state’ and that we might lead the nation toward the change we so urgently need. With a victory here in November, we will embody the awakening of a new American spirit of engagement and responsibility.”
One-stop voting begins this Thursday and the free concerts start on Sunday. Now get out there and do your thing, North Carolina!
