Joss Stone to record campaign song for Barack Obama
Soul singer Joss Stone is set to record a song backing Barack Obama's bid to become the US president.
Democrat candidate Obama personally asked the 21-year-old singer to record a theme song for his election campaign.
The Devon-born star is reportedly already in the studio getting the song ready for his November election battle with Republican John McCain.
Obama reportedly approached Joss because of her appeal to both black and white voters.
A source told the Sun: 'Joss is a big supporter of Barack Obama and was very excited to be asked to do this for him.
'He sent a personal message asking her to get on board.
'He has always admired her music and thinks she is the perfect choice because of her unique appeal to black and white voters.
'She believes he is going to be the first black American president and she is honoured to be a part of that.'
Barack is also supported by other major music industry stars like Jay-Z and Alicia Keyes.
