Performing for Obama: Jamie Foxx

Jamie Foxx, who was a big supporter of President Obama in 2008, will entertain before his speech at USC on Friday.

Also scheduled is the band Ozomatli.

John Legend has appeared at several rallies with Obama as he tries to whip up enthusiasm among Democrats, and particularly young voters, before the midterms.

What is striking, however, is how few Hollywood figures are hitting the campaign trail, especially as Democrats face perilous political terrain.
