With midterm elections drawing near, President Barack Obama is reaching out to younger American voters. Young voters, while overwhelmingly visible during the presidential elections, tend to disappear during the midterms. President Obama has enlisted several artists to help him get the message out to voters, one of them being Chicago rapper Common.
This upcoming Saturday, Common will perform at Hyde Park in Chicago in support of President Obama’s campaign for Democrat votes. The rally, which is free to the public, will be held close to the University of Chicago and is expected to hold a massive amount of people.
Common is not the only artist to have performed during the recent Democratic campaigns. President Obama also enlisted The Roots to perform during Pennsylvanian candidate Joe Sestak’s rally last month.
Common will take to the stage at 4:30 in Hyde Park, on Oct. 30.
