According to media reports, celebrity entertainers are lining up to give their support to US presidential candidate Barack Obama. Barbra Streisand, who bowed out of Israel's 60th anniversary celebrations and thus denied her highest-ranking fan President Shimon Peres the opportunity to hear her sing, has announced that she is ready to perform at as many fundraisers as necessary to help the Democratic candidate to find his way to the White House. Other celebrities who have offered to support Obama include Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Chuck Berry, Oprah Winfrey and Will Smith - and that's just a short list.
