Volunteers for the Obama campaign got a very special visitor Thursday afternoon.
Grammy award winning singing star and Ohio native John legend stopped by to thank volunteers for all their hard work, which includes making calls and going door to door to tell people about the President's work in office.
Legend says he supports Obama for many reasons, but he's especially thankful for the auto industry bailout. Legend's father worked for an auto plant for many years, and he knows first hand what helping that industry meant to workers and their families.
Legend says he often uses his celebrity status to support causes he believes in. So far, he has stopped in Toledo, Cincinnati and Dayton in support of Obama.
