Jay-Z, Bruce Springsteen to Perform at Obama Rally, Arcade Fire's Win Butler Writes Pro-Obama Essay

With the Presidential election only days away, artists are continuing to voice support for President Barack Obama. On Monday, both Jay-Z and Bruce Springsteen will perform at Obama's rally in Columbus, Ohio, as The Washington Post reports. Springsteen will also play at Obama's final rally in Des Moines, Iowa; Michelle Obama will join onstage. 

In related news, Arcade Fire's Win Butler today voiced support for the President in an essay for Dave Eggers and Jordan Kurland's 90 Days, 90 Reasons project. (Ben Gibbard and Superchunk's Mac McCaughan have also contributed.) "I want four more sweet years of Canadians liking Americans," wrote Butler, who lives in Canada but is an American citizen.

Butler emphasized the value of Obama's ability to communicate effectively with foreign nations: 

The Republicans will try to convince America that President Obama being a good communicator is somehow a bad thing. In fact, this kind of personal charisma is perhaps the most direct way a president can pursue America's interests abroad. The most compelling recent example of President Obama's abilities as a communicator came in his recent address to the United Nations. This speech was broadcast all over Canada and the world, and it detailed America's vision for human rights, democratic change in the Middle East, and its priority to change the global status of women. I felt so proud that our president understands that there are global moral imperatives that unite us all.
