Singing the Gospel for Obama

The Obama campaign is announcing the launch of an “unprecedented gospel concert tour” in South Carolina as part of the campaign’s grassroots “40 Days of Faith & Family” effort.

The concerts, which will be next week, will feature Mary Mary, Donnie McClurkin and Hezekiah Walker, Grammy Award winners all, as well as gospel quartet the Mighty Clouds of Joy.

What’s next? Can we expect a Harold Ford, Jr.-esque commercial shot in a church?
