Stone to lend voice to Obama campaign

LONDON: British soul singer Joss Stone is set to sing a theme song for US presidential candidate Barack Obama’s election campaign.

Obama has asked Stone to record one song for his campaign. Obama approached Stone because he was impressed with her ability to be popular among both white and black fans, reports thesun.co.uk.

A source said, “Obama sent a personal message asking her to get on board. He has always admired her music.”
