LAist Caption Contest: GOTV with the Obama Girls + Stevie Wonder @ UCLA
Stevie Wonder was the first of two surprises led to the Pauley Pavilion floor by Michelle Obama at yesterday's Get Out the Vote for Obama Rally. After a short explanation of his history as a Clinton supporter turned Obama believer, Wonder led the crowd in a rather difficult vocal exercise based on the candidate's name (see video below).
Maria Shriver netted worldwide headlines by punctuating Obama's weekend "surge" in the polls with a surprise endorsement.
César Chávez was tight with RFK. Now his daughters support Barack Obama.
Oprah Winfrey riled up the crowd after Caroline Kennedy (right) spoke briefly...
...but Michelle Obama carried the afternoon with an inspired, broad-ranging, and substantive speech.
