(AP) - Terry McAuliffe brings hip-hop artist and Democratic activist Will.i.am onto his campaign for governor for four Virginia stops.
The former Democratic National Committee chairman and the Black Eyed Peas leader will appear together next Monday in Portsmouth, Hampton, Richmond and Arlington.
It's not McAuliffe's first celebrity help. Last week, former President Bill Clinton campaigned for him in Richmond and Roanoke and returns later this month.
An early Barack Obama supporter, Will.i.am helped weave Obama's campaign deeply into popular culture last year with a 4½-minute video titled from Obama's campaign mantra, "Yes We Can."
The star-studded viral video hit included Ryan Phillippe, Scarlett Johansson, Herbie Hancock and others vocalizing lines from Obama stump speeches with Will.i.am carrying its melody.
