On Monday evening, Senator Barack Obama was in Denver for the start of the Democratic National Convention. Also on hand at the DNC was singer John Legend, who took center stage to debut his new single, If You’re Out There. In a statement to the media, Legend explained that the song “reflects the themes of hope and change, responsibility and leadership, and commitment to a better tomorrow.” Joining Legend for the song’s bridge is the Agape Choir of Culver City, California. Produced by Trevor Horn and longtime collaborator, Devo Springsteen, If You’re Out There is available for free download at Obama’s website. Legend is set to release his latest album, Evolver, on October 28 courtesy of Columbia Records.
