Heart, Patti LaBaelle for LA Obama rally this Sunday (Oct 12)

Stars urge women to register to vote

Heart and Patti LaBelle are slated to perform at a voter registration rally in support of US presidential candidate Barack Obama on Sunday (October 12) in Los Angeles.

The event, dubbed ‘Every Woman For Obama’, is set to take place at UCLA’s Pauley Pavilion. It also features appearances by actress Christina Applegate and comedian Chelsea Handler, among others.

Heart singers Ann and Nancy Wilson are urging women to register to vote before California’s October 20 registration deadline, and support Democrat Obama.

Last month, Heart sent a cease-and-desist letter to the US Republican Party after controversial vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin used their song during her appearance at the Republican National Convention, as previously reported.
